Product Description:
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is a major public health problem in the United States and throughout the world. Each year, this disease affects nearly 150,000 new patients, and it is the second leading cause of mortality, accounting for almost 50,000 deaths in the United States.
 
Worldwide, CRC affl icts nearly 800,000 individuals and is associated with 500,000 deaths. Over the past 10 years, signifi cant advances have been made in the screening for and early detection of CRC as well as in the different treatment approaches
—including surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy
—that are now available for patients withearly-stage CRC and more advanced stages of the disease.
 
Without question, CRC has now become a highly preventable and curable disease through regular screenings and early detection, and highly treatable when diagnosed at an even more advanced stage.
 
In this book, we have condensed and summarized a wealth of essential information on the multidisciplinary treatment approach for patients with early-stage CRC, and presented it in a practical and readable format.
 
It is critical that a team of physicians from various specialties—including surgery, radiation oncology, medical oncology, pathology, and radiology— provide their particular expertise in developing individual treatment plans for patients with CRC. With this in mind, the fi rst three chapters review various key aspects relating to the surgical management of patients with CRC. The subsequent two chapters are focused on pathologic staging and the role of prognostic and predictive biomarkers in pathologic assessment. The fi nal three chapters are devoted to an update on the role of adjuvant chemotherapy for colon cancer, the integration of biologic agents in adjuvant treatment regimens, and the combined-modality approach to treating rectal cancer.
My hope is that this book will serve as a source of practical information that can be used by physicians and other health-care professionals actively involved in the daily care of patients with CRC. This book should be viewed as a work in progress; our hope is to update it in the future to incorporate
