Oncologist, Radiation 's  Response
long term use of dicynene may not be suitable to control mucosal bleeding. Metastatic colon cancer can be treated with chemotherapy and depending upon exact site of bleeding palliative radiation may be an option which may effectively control the bleeding. Consult your oncologist. Take care.
