Colon Cancer

Are you suffering from persistent constipation and / or diarrhea, blood traces in the stool, abdominal pain, tiredness, weight loss ? This could be symptoms of a colon cancer. Do not wait too long to consult an expert for essential diagnostic steps ± treatment of this tumor.

How can I help you ?

Please contact me ideally via my mobile phone 0664 206 74 80 and fix an appointment in my private praxis. During my first consultation we will discuss your symptoms and the situation in detail, and I will examine you physically. We will also discuss required diagnostic steps. I will refer you to a (soft) colonoscopy, blood examination and computer tomography of the chest and abdomen. Depending on the results of these examinations, the subsequent treatment strategy will be defined.

Subsequent steps upon diagnosis of colon cancer

In case of a localised tumor, a surgical intervention by an experienced surgeon will be required. If this is not the case, I will coordinate performance of chemo- and/or immunotherapy, and in case of rectal cancer combined radiochemotherapy. Please contact me as soon as possible because the earlier the stage of the tumor the better the chance for cure.

Duration of treatment in case of colon cancer

This will depend on the stage of the tumor. After a short phase of pretreatment examinations (1-2 weeks) surgery or other therapeutic interventions will be done, which can last 3-6 months.

Costs of treatment?

The expenses for diagnostic procedures and treatment at the Medical University in Vienna or in a private hospital will be refunded by the public or a private health insurance. My personal honoraium will be 180 Euro for the first examination. Your health insurance will also refund this amount by up to 80%, which a physician with a public insurance contract would charge you. Private insurances usually refund the entire honorarium.
