Abstract

Colorectal cancer is the third most diagnosed cancer type, responsible for 11% of all cancer mortality, with more than 140,000 new cases diagnosed in the United States each year, according to the American Cancer Society. Yet it's easily treated and curable in the early stages. We give you the information you need to know about this type of cancer, including what to teach your patients and how to advocate for screening.
