Thanks to ongoing research and medical advances, people who face colorectal cancer now have several treatment options available, including surgery, chemotherapy, targeted therapy, radiation therapy or, more often a combination of therapies. The most effective, most appropriate treatment plan is individualized to you based on the nature of her particular cancer and circumstances. The treatment plan is developed in conjunction with your treatment team.
Care for the Whole Person
Cancer can affect patients and their families in many ways, not all of them physical. Swedish goes beyond treating the disease to help patients and family to cope with cancer integrating services for the mind, body and spirit into an individual’s cancer care.

Patient Support & Resources
At the Swedish Cancer Institute, the patient is always the focus. Even if you have asked dozens of questions, feel free to ask them all again to be included in making important decisions about your care. Here at Swedish we see many patients seeking a second opinion. A second opinion can assure you that the suggested treatment is the best option for you.
