Treatment plans for colorectal cancer
Specific treatment for colorectal cancer will be determined by your physician based on:
- your age, overall health and medical history
- extent of the disease
- your tolerance for specific medications, procedures or therapies
- expectations for the course of this disease
- your opinion or preference
After the colorectal cancer is diagnosed, your physician may recommend a treatment plan that involves a combination of surgery, radiation and/or chemotherapy.
