Colon Cancer treatment in Bangladesh

Colon cancer is a malignant tumor in the colon that typically begins as small, benign clumps of cells known as polyps. Over time, these polyps can develop into cancerous tumors in the colon area. So it is essential to prevent this cancer through screening colonoscopy and polypectomy and to treat this disease soon. Due to the lack of proper colon cancer treatment and surgery, this disease causes severe death in Bangladesh.

That's why we provide exceptional and modern colon cancer treatment in Bangladesh with Dr. Tariq Akhtar Khan–a reputed colon cancer specialist and the best colorectal surgeon.
