Colorectal cancer occupies a leading position in terms of morbidity and mortality among oncological diseases. This is due, on the one hand, to the improvement in the quality of screening programs and early diagnosis of cancer, which leads to greater detection of colorectal cancer, and on the other hand, more and more colorectal cancer is diagnosed in young and middle-aged people, and as a rule, in this age group of patients, the disease proceeds unfavorably, the primary tumor rapidly increases in size, and metastasis to distant organs occurs extremely quickly.
Science does not stand still, the oncologist currently has a wide variety of different groups of drugs for the treatment of cancer, primarily modern immune therapy, which is gradually changing the paradigm of cancer treatment. Despite the fact that the range of indications for prescribing drug therapy is currently expanding, surgery remains the most radical treatment for colorectal cancer. Surgical methods and approaches to the treatment of colorectal cancer are constantly changing and improving. This increases the survival rate and reduces the frequency of local relapse.
