Colorectal cancer is the third most frequently diagnosed cancer in men and women in the United States, and in 2005, an estimated 104,950 new cases of colon cancer will occur. Despite these statistics, mortality from colon cancer has decreased over the past 30 years, possibly because of earlier diagnosis through screening and better treatment modalities. The NCCN guidelines summarize the management of colon cancer, from disease presentation through management of recurrent disease and patient surveillance.
