Colon Cancer

Cancer of the colon or rectum is also called colorectal cancer. In the United States, colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the U.S., so screening and careful treatment of colon cancer is vitally important.

EvergreenHealth surgeons offer a range of treatment options for benign (non-cancerous) and malignant (cancerous) diseases of the colon, rectum, and anus with a focus on techniques that cause less pain and promote faster recovery. Some conditions are precursors to cancer, so prompt diagnosis and treatment is imperative.
