Colorectal cancer is the fourth most common type of cancer worldwide yet there continues to be controversy and confusion regarding the best methods and techniques for its diagnosis and management. Colon and Rectal Cancer is a clinician’s guide to major advances, including the tremendous improvements in endorectal ultrasonography, which allow a much more accurate staging of rectal tumors and surrounding lymph nodes. In addition, this comprehensive manual investigates the increasing variety of treatment options for rectal cancers at differing stages. Individual chapters address such topics as: Colon and rectal polyps Screening for colon and rectal cancer Presentation and pretreatment evaluation of patients with adenocarcinoma of the colon Treatment of both colon and rectal cancers and their follow-up after treatment Neoadjuvant and adjuvant therapy for adenocarcinoma of the rectum Treatment for metastatic disease of the colon and rectum Uncommon tumors of the colon and rectum Assembled with the practicing health professional in mind, this clearly written reference will be useful to any practitioner who encounters patients suffering from these malignancies. By fully and objectively evaluating the utility and value of all pretreatment and posttreatment studies, Colon and Rectal Cancer will guide practitioners through the responsible assessment of staging, follow-up studies, and treatment modalities for those suffering from cancers of the colon and rectum.

INTELLIGENCE FOR THE FIGHT AGAINST CANCER The second edition of the book on colorectal cancer (colon and rectal cancer) in the Intelligent Patient Guide series, national best-selling books for cancer patients and their families. Patients who take an active part in making decisions about their treatment are better able to deal with their illness than are patients who give control to their doctors. The book provides information on all aspects of colon and rectal cancer and equips patients with the knowledge needed to take an active part in their treatment. Topics include: what cancer is, the symptoms your doctor watches for, how you can prevent colorectal cancer, which screening test is best and when should it be started?, when to have surgery, chemotherapy, or radiation, which treatments to avoid, what actually happens when you undergo surgery, possible complications of surgery, side effects of chemotherapy and radiation, alternative treatments, and psychological effects of colorectal cancer. The following quote is by former CEO Canadian Cancer Society and National Cancer Institute of Canada: The Intelligent Patient Guide has been at my side for the last eight months as I fought cancer.
