Current and Emerging Trends in Detection and Treatment
By Mark Stokes MD, FACP
Colon cancer is the third leading cause of cancer death, killing approximately 60,000 Americans each year. What makes this statistic especially regrettable is that colon cancer is preventable. This important book explains the science behind the disease, outlining how it is currently diagnosed and treated and the emerging therapies for detection and treatment. The author
shows how lifestyle choices made during the teen years—diet, exercise, and smoking—can impact the future development of colon cancer.
