Colon and rectal cancer, often shortened to colorectal, is the name given to cancers originating in either the colon or the rectum. These types of cancers are the fourth most common cancer in men and women in the United States. If you’ve been recently diagnosed with colon or rectal cancer, it’s important to determine the staging of your disease so that a treatment plan can be coordinated as soon as possible.
