- Local excision: If the cancer is found at a very early stage, the doctor may remove it without cutting through the abdominal wall. Instead, the doctor may put a tube with a cutting tool through the rectum into the colon and cut the cancer out. This is called a local excision. If the cancer is found in a polyp (a small bulging area of tissue), the operation is called a polypectomy.
- Resection of the colon with anastomosis: If the cancer is larger, the doctor will perform a partialcolectomy (removing the cancer and a small amount of healthy tissue around it).
