Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


At least 800 people in Maryland die each year from cancer of the colon and rectum. Over 400 cases could be cured if an annual checkup with digital and proctosigmoidoscopic examination was carried out after reaching the age of 40. The secrets of curing cancer of the colon and rectum are an awareness of its possible presence when diagnosing symptoms combined with early diagnosis and adequate treatment. The latest techniques of early diagnosis and the results of treatment, including surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy are discussed.
