CANCER TYPES

Gastroenterology

This consists of the gullet (oesophagus), the stomach, the small intestine, the large intestine (colon), the rectum and anus (back passage), the liver, the gallbladder and the pancreas.

The endoscopy department at Bon Secours Cork Cancer Centre (BSCCC) provides a comprehensive range of services to diagnose conditions of the GI tract and liver, in conjunction with colleagues in GI surgery, radiology, pathology and dietetics. The department collaborates with the BSCCC oncology service in the diagnosis of GI and hepatobiliary cancers and the treatment of GI complications of cancers treated with chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy.

The department provides a number of diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopic procedures in a modern endoscopy unit for the diagnosis and treatment of GI cancers and benign conditions of the upper and lower GI tract. It provides a comprehensive range of services to diagnose oesophageal and colorectal cancer.

Endoscopic procedures include:

  • Gastroscopy
  • Flexible sigmoidoscopy
  • Colonoscopy
  • Endoscopic retrograde cholangio-pancreatography (ERCP)

A direct access outpatient endoscopy service is provided for selected patients on receipt of a referral letter. The department is supported by two inflammatory bowel disease/GI nurse specialists who can be contacted directly by patients and GPs.
