Surgery for colorectal cancer
Surgery involves removal of the primary tumor together with a margin on either side, plus local lymph nodes. The two ends of the bowel are then reconnected.
Where this is not possible the patient is likely to have a colostomy. Some patients have a temporary colostomy to allow wound healing.
