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
  • Nausea
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Vomiting

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 physical examination.

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.
