Colorectal Cancer Treatments
The following describes methods for treating colorectal cancer. For specific information regarding your health and medical care options, please contact your Hurley physician or medical professional.
Highly advanced treatment designed around you
After colorectal cancer has been detected, and further testing has provided detailed information on the nature and scope of the disease, your oncologist will advise you on the best course of treatment. Our oncologists are committed to educating patients about colorectal cancer and treatment options so that, together, you and your care providers can create a plan that addresses your medical, emotional and family needs.
New treatment methods for positive outcomes
Extensive cancer research has resulted in numerous breakthroughs in treatment and rehabilitation. There are a number of new, effective methods that can stop and reverse the progression of colorectal cancer. Advances in surgical, medical and radiation technology mean that today’s cancer patients receive the full benefits of treatment while experiencing fewer side effects and less discomfort than patients experienced in the past. Hurley Medical Center’s palliative care specialists are also consulted, and can recommend medications, relaxation techniques and other methods that can help reduce pain and minimize nausea associated with aggressive treatment of cancer.
