Colon & Rectal Cancers

Colon & Rectal Cancers

Colorectal cancer is a collective term used to describe cancer that begins in the colon or in the rectum. Depending on where they start, these cancers can also be named colon cancer or rectal cancer. Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer diagnosed in both men and women in the United States.

If you or someone you know has been recently diagnosed with colon or rectal cancer, treatments may begin at a cancer center led by a medical oncologist. This is often the starting point, even before surgery is performed, if needed.

For many cancer patients, a medical oncologist oversees the entire process of cancer treatment, acting as the lead physician for your team of medical professionals. Your oncologist will help you evaluate the options and assist in determining the best combination and timing for various types of cancer treatments.

The oncologists at Cancer Care Centers of Brevard are experienced in the various aspects of colorectal cancer treatment including clinical research trials investigating new therapies and combinations of therapies.
