Hi

Thanks for your query.

Colon cancer needs staging investigations to confirm that the disease has not spread and then a surgery. It may be followed up with chemotherapy.

There are many good centers in Hyderabad. My suggestions-

1. Dr MV XXXXXXX - XXXXXXX hospital
2. Dr XXXXXXX Rajappa - Indo-American Center

Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer further follow-up queries, if any.

Do you have any feedback about Apollo Cancer hospital, Hyderabad?

Hello Dr. XXXXXXX

As I understand, surgery is a must for colon cancer. It might be followed by chemo depending on the stage of the cancer. So, right now, we need a surgical oncologist. The doctors you have suggested are all medical oncologist. Will they be the best person to guide us towards a good surgical oncologist.

Hope I am not bothering you.

Thanks

I am fully aware of that but being a medical oncologist myself I have much more contacts in this field than surgery.
Unfortunately I am not aware of any good surgical oncologist at Hyderabad. I am sure there are many.

The people I have suggested will guide you to persons they rely on.

Thanks.

Colonoscopy was done followed with biopsy.

Colonoscopy report - sessile polypoisdal lesion seen at 40 cms from anal verge.
biopsy - moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma
