In the end, correct knowledge is the greatest "weapon" to face cancer.
Please pick up this book before reading uncertain articles circulating on the Internet!
Cancer is no longer called an "incurable disease" due to advances in medical care. But because of this, it has become increasingly important for people affected by cancer to live "their own life" while facing treatment. If you know the current status of cancer treatment and have the correct knowledge, you can realize your "own life. What are the side effects of anticancer drugs? What will I have to eat after the surgery? What are the possibilities of immunotherapy? ...... and so on. There may be many misconceptions in the fragmented and judgmental articles on the Internet. Please get the "correct knowledge" through the careful articles and illustrations in this book. From the supervisor's "Preface
According to "Cancer Statistics 2023," the number of colorectal cancer cases diagnosed per year is approximately 88,000 in men and 68,000 in women, and has been increasing for 17 consecutive years. It is the second most common cancer among both men and women, and the most common cancer in Japan.
In the 14 years since the first edition of this book was published in 2009, there have been remarkable advances in the diagnosis and treatment of colorectal cancer, and major changes have occurred. As such, this book has also been completely revised to respond to these changes.
To cite some specific examples of major changes, endoscopic treatment for early-stage cancer has become common due to improvements in endoscopic examination techniques. In surgical treatment, laparoscopic surgery has replaced open surgery, and robot-assisted surgery has recently become widely used throughout Japan. In addition to conventional chemotherapy, various molecular targeted drugs are now used in combination with chemotherapy, and immune checkpoint inhibitors have also been introduced. For recurrent tumors in the pelvic region, powerful heavy-ion radiation therapy is also being actively used.
Despite the introduction of these newest treatments, there are still many unresolved issues in the postoperative period of colorectal cancer. In addition to concerns about the recurrence of cancer, there are other problems that are a major part of daily life, such as increased frequency of bowel movements after surgery, difficulty in passing stools, and the need to create a stoma (artificial anus) and attach a pouch to it.
Even after successful completion of surgery, which is less burdensome than conventional surgery, many patients may feel anxious and confused about how they should spend their time afterward and whether they can really return to society.
Therefore, this book outlines the latest treatment for colorectal cancer and explains how to live with cancer after surgery and how to lead a smooth social life, with emphasis on tips for postoperative recovery, how to lead a daily life, and how to control bowel movements as a reader for life after surgery. We hope that this book will help readers to face colorectal cancer head-on and live their lives in their own way.
