What is a stoma?

Stoma is a Greek word meaning ‘opening’ or ‘mouth’. A stoma is an opening on the abdomen that can be connected to either your digestive or urinary system. This will allow waste (urine or faeces) to be diverted out of the body.

Why do people have stomas?

There are many reasons why people may need a stoma. Some of the common reasons include:

  • Bowel cancer
  • Bladder cancer
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Crohn’s Disease
  • Ulcerative Colitis
  • Diverticulitis

An obstruction to the bladder or bowel

Is a stoma permanent?

You can either have a temporary stoma or a permanent stoma, depending on the reason for the stoma formation.
