for Colon Cancer (non-rectal)

   
Colon Cancer (non-rectal)
Suggested Pre-Referral Evaluation and Management Guidelines Referral is indicated if patient has biopsy proven colon cancer or a suspicious colon mass.

If colonoscopy and biopsy were performed outside of the UMHS system, reports should be faxed and pathology slides should be mailed for confirmatory review by our pathologists at or before the time of the clinic visit. Receiving these prior to the clinic visit is preferable.
Suggested Additional Test/Management Prior to Specialty Visit
  • Tattooing of the site if lesion has been biopsied or removed by colonoscopy
  • CT scan with oral and IV contrast of the chest, abdomen, and pelvis within 6 weeks of the clinic visit
  • Labs to include comprehensive metabolic panel, CBCP, PT, PTT, and CEA


  • Reports of any testing performed outside of the UMHS system and radiologic images on CD should be available for review at or before the time of the clinic visit. Receiving these prior to the clinic visit is preferable.
