I need whatever info you can give me. My mothers doctor thinks she has colon cancer. After several day of stomache and bowel difficulties she had a CT last week that shows a thickening to the colon wall that is more likly cancer than diverticulitis. We know she needs a colonoscopy , but we don`t know how to pick an oncologist or hospital if she is diagnosed. We live in the southeast U.S. If the colonoscopy reveals cancer, how quickly will she need a resection and how should we decied were to go.
Any advice you could give us would be greatly appriciated
