Diagnosing Conditions & Disease of the Colon
The colon starts in the right lower side of your abdomen at the junction
of the ileum (small intestine) and cecum. It can be afflicted by multiple
disease processes. The colon includes the cecum, as well as the transverse
colon, ascending (right) colon, sigmoid colon, and descending (left) colon.
Your rectum is a continuation of the sigmoid colon within the pelvis and
is continuous with the anus, which is the last section of the gastrointestinal
tract. Depending on the type of disease which you have been diagnosed
with and other issues which you are facing, colorectal and anorectal surgery
may become complex.
The symptoms of colorectal disease are wide-ranging and quite variable,
which can include:
- Weight loss
- Pain and bleeding
How Are Colorectal & Anorectal Disease Diagnosed?
Often times, diseases which affect the colon produce no noticeable symptoms.
The first step in making a diagnosis is making an appointment with a Manhattan
colorectal and anorectal surgeon for a medical history consultation and
Depending on your condition, a surgeon from our team may determine that
you need imaging such as a CT scan, MRI, or X-Rays, an ultrasound, or
an endoscopy. There is no set treatment which applies to every person
- you need to meet with a doctor who can accurately diagnose your situation
and tailor a treatment plan for you.
