This thoroughly revised and extended second edition of the book clearly explains the nature of colon polyps and their relationship to colorectal cancer in light of new developments. It discusses in detail new topics, including polyp development, risk factors and prevention measures, and also describes surgical, medical oncology and radiotherapy treatments of colon cancer. In cases of advanced colon cancer, it clearly demonstrates how to perform surgical interventions in the presence of urinary tract metastases and gynecologic organ metastases. The book also includes chapters on medical treatment and radiotherapy in distant metastases of colorectal cancer. Further, it presents resection of liver metastases and transplantation options. Carefully examining the risk factors, and the treatment of colon cancer from the early to the advanced stages, the book is invaluable not only for medical specialists and students, but also for general readers and patients.
