Patient Testimonial for Surgical Management of Colorectal Cancer

Testimonial by Dr. Martin Kasirye Sseruwagi

Treatment for: Metastatic Colorectal Cancer
Treated by: Dr. Sachin Marda
Patient location: Uganda

Metastatic colorectal cancer refers to cancer that originated in the colon or rectum and has spread to other parts of the body. The primary cause of colorectal cancer is often not clear, but certain risk factors like age, family history, and unhealthy lifestyle choices, such as smoking or a diet high in processed foods, might increase the risk. Symptoms may include changes in bowel habits, blood in the stool, abdominal discomfort or pain, unexplained weight loss, fatigue, or weakness.

Diagnosis involves various tests, including colonoscopies, imaging scans like CT scans or MRIs, blood tests, and biopsies, to confirm the presence of cancer cells and determine the extent of the spread. Treatment usually involves a combination of therapies such as surgery, chemotherapy, targeted drug therapy, radiation therapy, or immunotherapy. Patients should discuss potential risks and benefits with their healthcare provider to understand and manage the possible complications while undergoing treatment for metastatic colorectal cancer.

Dr. Martin Kasirye Sseruwagi from Uganda successfully received treatment for Metastatic Colorectal Cancer at Yashoda Hospitals, Hyderabad, under the supervision of Dr. Sachin Marda, Senior Consultant Oncologist & Robotic Surgeon (Cancer Specialist).
