In brief: Surgery

The main treatment for small and large intestine carcinomas is surgery.
After we analyze the situation and see if chemotherapy is required. In unusual cases such as cancer attached to and peeled off of other organs but still confined to the area, radiation may be suggested.

In brief: Depends on severity

If intestinal cancers are discovered early, surgery is usually the first treatment since removal of the tumor can often result in a complete cure.
If the cancer has spread beyond the intestines, radiation and/or chemotherapy may be indicated to shrink the tumor before surgery can be considered. Every case is different; tests must be done to determine the extent of the cancer.
