General surgery and colorectal conditions such as colon cancer, bowel cancer, colitis and Crohn's disease impair the lives of thousands of individuals every day. While those over 50 are more likely to be affected, more than 49 colorectal diseases are diagnosed in those between 20 and 54 years old daily. Securing treatment for a colorectal condition via the NHS requires numerous referrals from GP’s.  Regrettably, this delays treatment, which can ultimately see underlying conditions escalate. Ensuring that treatment can be sought in a timely manner, here at MUMs, we provide private general surgery and colorectal consultations to those in need.


General Surgery and Colorectal Symptoms

Identifying if general surgery or colorectal treatment is required can be difficult, especially as many of the symptoms typically encountered are related to a wealth of health conditions.  However, the following symptoms are typically associated with colorectal illnesses:

  • Change in bowel habits
  • Constipation
  • Rectal bleeding
  • Weight loss
  • Anal warts
  • Anal fissures
  • Anal fistulas
  • Hernias

Though these symptoms are associated with various health conditions, many of which can be treated easily, they often signal an underlying colorectal condition, such as colon cancer, colitis and Crohn's disease.  Without treatment, these conditions can be serious.  In some instances, they can also be fatal. If you have come to experience any of the above symptoms, have a family history of bowel cancer, and suspect that you may need treatment, we recommend arranging an appointment with our general surgery and colorectal consultant as soon as possible.
