Thanks for choosing this forum. First and foremost in order to layout a treatment plan for the bowel cancer, it is essential to know the exact shape, size, location and spread the the bowel cancer and its association and spread to the surrounding organs and structures. This can be revealed on different investigations such as CT scan and sonography which can reveal the exact nature of this cancer.The treatment whether through conventional or minimal access surgery will depend on the diagnosis. Hope this helps. Regards.
