Purpose of Using Chemotherapy in Colon Cancer Patients

http://youtu.be/kJ7JP1NJNVU It is possible for cancer cells to still be floating around in a patient's bloodstream after colon cancer surgery. These cells can enter other parts of the body and cause stage four cancer. Dr. Madappa Kundranda says the main purpose of using chemotherapy in patients with colon cancer is to kill or reduce those cancer cells. This therapy is done to reduce the risk of recurrence, potentially curing the patient. As with any medical procedure, there are risks and benefits to using chemotherapy. Dr. Madappa Kundranda obtained his medical degree from Bangalore University in India, before earning a PhD in cancer biology from Meharry Medical College in Nashville. Dr. Kundranda next completed an internship and residency in internal medicine at Fairview Hospital, a Cleveland Clinic Hospital. He then finished a hematology/oncology fellowship at the Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, AZ. He is currently a medical oncologist with Western Regional Medical Center.
