Colon Cancer Treatment

How is colorectal cancer treated?

The treatment plan that’s best for your cancer will depend on several factors, including your general health, your cancer’s stage and grade, and any unique genetic mutations that may be present.

Colorectal cancer treatment usually involves more than one kind of treatment and demands the expertise of physicians from several specialty areas, including surgical, medical and radiation oncologists, gastroenterologists and other experts.

Only at Roswell Park will you find all these specialists together under one roof, where they collaborate every day to consider every possible treatment option and determine the best plan for you.
