Colon & Rectal Cancer Care in South Chicago Suburbs

Cancer that begins in the colon is called colon cancer, and cancer that begins in the rectum is called rectal cancer. Cancer that starts in either of these organs may also be called colorectal cancer.

This type of cancer is quite common in the United States among both men and women. And like most types of cancer, it’s highly treatable if found early.

Our dedicated team of specialists cares for patients using the most advanced colon and rectal cancer treatments available, creating a personalized plan for each individual. We are conveniently located throughout the south Chicago suburbs, making it easy for you to receive excellent cancer care close to home.

Newly Diagnosed with a Colon or Rectal Cancer?

A diagnosis of colorectal cancer can leave a new patient feeling overwhelmed and with many questions. If you or someone you know has recently been diagnosed with colon or rectal cancer, gathering information before your first appointment can be helpful.

The lung cancer specialists at Affiliated Oncologists want to help you prepare so that you can soak in more of the information shared during the first appointment. We hope this can ease your mind about what you can expect.
