Colorectal Cancer is a complex disease caused by the interaction of hereditary and environmental factors that can be classified based on their importance. Colorectal Cancer Diagnosis and Therapeutic Updates provides comprehensive information about the diagnosis and treatment of colorectal cancer. Chapters first cover the fundamentals of colorectal cancer diagnosis, progressing further towards explaining therapeutic modalities and recent advances in the understanding of the disease.

Key Features:

- 11 organized, reader-friendly chapters that provide a complete overview of colorectal cancer

- Covers the colorectal cancer diagnosis, screening and histopathology

- Covers multimodal treatment of colorectal cancer, including chemotherapy, radiotherapy and robotic surgery

- Covers the management and surveillance of colorectal cancer

- Explains the key biochemical mechanisms involved in colorectal cancer treatment

- Covers recent information about colorectal cancer theranostics and drug delivery

- Includes references for further reading in every chapter

The book serves as an introductory reference for medical students and residents on the subject of colorectal cancer. It also serves as a quick reference on the disease for the practicing general physician.

Audience: Medical students, residents, general physicians.


Given the gap in the comprehensive book on “Colorectal cancer diagnosis and therapeutic updates, and the new findings”, the writers agreed to discuss as many key issues regarding colorectal cancer, its management, and therapeutic progress as necessary. This book is also unique in that it contains new information about IncRNA NLIPMT inhibitors and therapeutic use in the treatment of colorectal cancer. Another reason is the presence of several detailed chapters as well as a large number of appropriate illustrations. It is anticipated that after reading this book, the reader would have acquired the requisite skills for colorectal cancer diagnosis and clinical management. Knowing the signalling mechanisms involved in colorectal cancer targeting will open up fresh possibilities for cancer study in the reader's mind. Researchers and readers interested in finding a cure for colorectal cancer can read this book, according to the authors. The authors, in my view, will be fortunate to have grateful readers who obtain extensive expertise for their current practise in colorectal cancer treatment and therapeutics, as well as for future research.
