Treatment of Colorectal cancer can include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and other targeted therapies, or a combination of these. Doctors who treat cancer choose treatments based on the state of the disease, and the particular condition of the individual. 

Surgery  Surgery is the removal of the tumour and surrounding tissue during an operation. 
Radiation Therapy Radiation therapy is the use of high-energy X-rays to kill cancer cells and is commonly used for treating rectal cancer. 



Targeted Therapies: 

Targeted therapy is an approach that targets the cancer's specific proteins, genes, or the tissue environment that enable the cancer to survive. 

Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor Inhibitors:

Anti-angiogenesis therapy: 

This treatment focuses on stopping angiogenesis, which is the process of making new blood vessels.

Bevacizumab (Avastin) – an antibody therapy - was introduced in 2004, and, when combined with chemotherapy, has led to an increased overall survival for patients with metastatic (advanced) Colorectal Cancer. It has become a standard first-line treatment option.
