A large body of research demonstrates that colorectal cancer screening is an effective method for reducing colorectal cancer mortality. Screening can detect cancer at an earlier stage, before it becomes symptomatic, and the detection and removal of adenomas can prevent cancer. Rates of colorectal cancer screening had increased until 2010, at which time approximately 60% of eligible US adults parti...
Patients with colorectal cancer may be able to lower the risk of the disease worsening and improve their chances of survival with moderate daily exercise, according to new research by investigators at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. The results of the research contradict the widespread belief that, because the prognosis for patients with metastatic cancer is often poor, […] The post Metastati...
About 95 percent of colorectal cancers are considered "microsatellite stable" and very few of these cancers respond to immunotherapy, meaning that the vast majority of metastatic colorectal cancer patients are unable to benefit from medicines that activate the immune system against the disease - a strategy that has helped dramatically extend the lives of patients with related cancers. A study pres...
