Johns Hopkins Patient Guide to Colon and Rectal Cancer is a concise patient guide on treating and coping with colorectal cancer.

About the Series:

Learning that you or someone you love has cancer is devastating, and feeling lost and powerless is a common immediate response. The Johns Hopkins Patients’ Guides are designed to alleviate your anxiety, empower you with information, and enable you to fully understand your treatment options. Each book in this series is dedicated to a specific type of cancer. The information is there to help lighten your burden and to assist you in becoming an active participant in your care. Cancer rarely allows us to take a diversion from life, and offering guidance on how to continue to live life while working hard on getting well is part of the outcome we hope to help you achieve.
