Colon cancer and asbestos

Postby Ksiemonsma » Tue Dec 14, 2021 1:56 pm

I would love any information that links colon cancer to asbestos exposure, 4 years cancer free from a stage 3C diagnosis and living the good life.
Colon cancer 7/17 age 49
Colectomy 8/17
Stage 3C T4B N2B MO
16/27 lymph nodes
First round of FOLFOX on 9/13/17
3/7/18. 12th round and hopefully last of FOLFOX (9 with oxi)
Clear scans 6/7/18
Clear scans 10/3/18

Have you searched already ?
provides a large number of studies and reports

My father died age 86 from pleural mesothelioma attributed to occupational exposures. No reference to any abdominal/intestinal pathology.

Peritoneal mesothelioma may be attached to the membranes of the colorectum BUTT is not primary CRC as we know it here.

Please share your findings with the forum
