Bowel Cancer Nursing Care Plan

Bowel cancer is a general term for cancer that begins in the large bowel. Depending on where the cancer starts, bowel cancer is sometimes called colon or rectal cancer. Most cases of bowel cancer begin as small benign or non-cancerous clumps of cells called adenomatous polyps. Over time some of these polyps become bowel cancer.

The main symptoms of bowel cancer are persistent blood in the stools, a persistent change in bowel habit, a persistent lower abdominal pain, bloating or discomfort, loss of appetite and significant unintentional weight loss. The treatment for bowel cancer may be a combination of surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

The Care Plan sets out a clear explanation of the resident’s issue, and will guide the nurse or carer through the process of preparing a comprehensive, individual person centred Care Plan.
