New Zealand has one of the highest incidences of bowel cancer in the world. Each year about 3,000 people are diagnosed with the disease and more than 1,200 will die.
Depending on the stage of bowel cancer, treatment may differ from case to case. Surgery is the most common means of treating bowel cancer. In this instance, a colectomy is performed to remove the primary cancer. Some patients may require chemotherapy and radiation therapy post-surgery to help reduce the chance of cancer returning. This is more common with patients with stage 2 bowel cancer, but may not always be the case.
