The choice of treatment depends on the type of colorectal cancer, how advanced the cancer is and the age and general health of the individual.  Your consultant may order some diagnostic tests to help gather more information.

The main forms of colorectal cancer treatment at The London Clinic 

  • Surgery which can include removal of the tumour and or part of the colon or rectum
  • Radiotherapy which can include Image Guided Radiotherapy (IGRT), conformal, Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy or Volumetric Arc Therapy (IMRT/RapidArc) (radiotherapy to the male and female pelvis info leaflet)
  • Chemotherapy

A treatment plan involving one or a combination of any of the above treatments is individually customised and will be discussed with your consultant.
