Follow-up care of colorectal cancer

Regular follow-up after the treatments is essential. At Docrates Cancer Center, the patient always meets his or her personal doctor at individually scheduled follow-up appointments.

At Docrates, further examinations are available without delay, should you experience any symptoms or concerns that require further assessment after your treatments.

The follow-up of colorectal cancers includes endoscopic examinations, the follow-up of CEA or the tumor biomarker and, in diseases with a large risk of recurrence, imaging examinations. Colon cancer and rectal cancer are often cured through surgery and adjuvant therapy, but some of them recur despite treatment. They typically recur close to the parent tumor or as metastases in the liver, lungs, the intraperitoneal cavity or ovaries. Metastases in bones and the brain are rarer.

From the point of view of the quality of life of the cancer patient, it is extremely essential to pay attention to the patient’s comprehensive health and well-being. The Health and Recovery Center at Docrates Cancer Center provides top experts who are thoroughly familiar with the treatment of cancer patients. An expert in cancer recovery can help the patient to draw up a recovery plan that meets his or her individual needs. After colorectal cancer, typical treatments supporting recovery include nutritional therapy, sexual and urotherapy and physiotherapy. Psychological support may be needed in the form of peer groups or therapeutic discussion contacts, for example.

If colorectal cancer has spread, a case-by-case treatment plan must be prepared. In such cases, the latest chemotherapies and metastasis surgery by our partners are available.
