More than cutting-edge, cutting out.

Cancer Institute of Florida is committed to providing those with colorectal cancer the latest and most effective treatments available using a multidisciplinary approach that may include surgery, radiation and/or chemotherapy or a combination of all these.

Treatment Options for Colorectal Cancer

Treatment depends partly on the stage of the cancer. In general, treatments may include:

  • Chemotherapy to kill cancer cells
  • Surgery (most often a colectomy) to remove cancer cells
  • Radiation therapy to destroy cancerous tissue
  • Stage 0 colon cancer may be treated by removing the cancer cells, often during a colonoscopy. For stages I, II and III cancer, more extensive surgery is needed to remove the part of the colon that is cancerous
