MEDIA REVIEWS

"Profiling the third most common cancer for both incidence and death in the US, Gearhart and Ahuja (both surgery and oncology, Johns Hopkins U.) have assembled studies by colleagues to introduce the current understanding of the epidemiology, risk factors, and treatment options for colorectal cancer. The goal, as for the series as a whole, is to provide safe and effective information to help clinicians arrive at a diagnosis, obtain accurate clinical staging of the disease, and choose the best method of treatment. Among the topics are hereditary colorectal cancer and polyp syndromes, behavior and dietary modification in prevention, fecal occult blood test, colonoscopy and flexible sigmoidoscopy in colorectal cancer screening and surveillance, radiological techniques for virtual colonoscopy, open surgical techniques, systemic therapy, why to participate in clinical trials, vaccines and immunotherapy, and coping with colorectal cancer."
