Obstruction implies not able to pass stools/flatus/both freely. It is an emergency if it is complete obstruction, if it is partial obstruction then it needs urgent treatment. CT needs to be done to rule out the spread of cancer to other organs. Needs Surgical intervention at the earliest.
Next Steps
Immediate Surgical Oncologist or GI surgeon consultation
