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 with early-stage CRC and more advanced stages of the disease.
