Treatments and Screening | ASCRS

Treatment options and preventative screening are discussed online, but it is important to remember to always contact a colon and rectal surgeon for treatment options related specifically to your needs. Read the tips and recommendations related to surgery options. Treatment options take into consideration your overall health and related symptoms.  

When considering your treatment options, it is a good idea to ask for a second opinion, if possible. This may provide you with more information and help you feel more confident about the treatment plan you have chosen. It is also important to know that your chances for having the best possible outcome are highest in the hands of a medical team that is experienced in treating colorectal cancer.
