This book aims to provide an integrated and comprehensive approach to colorectal cancer control, delivered by internationally well known and respected authors who write with clarity and authority. It presents the peer reviewed work of an international cohort of preeminent authors, with a very broad view of the epidemiology, screening, surveillance, and therapeutic approaches to colorectal neoplasia.It will be of great interest and value to practicing physicians and surgeons, to cancer researchers, to students and trainees, and to an increasingly sophisticated lay audience.
