The information presented on the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons (ASCRS) Web site is solely intended to provide you with information that will help educate you on various conditions in regard to colon and rectal cancer.

Colon and rectal diseases comprise a broad range of conditions and ailments, the severity of which can vary from mildly irritating to life threatening. Research has demonstrated that early screening and treatment of colon and rectal diseases can significantly improve treatment outcomes and survival rates, yet many patients delay or don't seek treatment because of lack of knowledge about their disease and its symptoms or the benefits of early treatment, or are too embarrassed to seek help. The ASCRS offers information on conditions relating to the colon, rectum and anus such as:

Anal Pain (Cancer de ano)
Anal Abscess - Fistula
Anal Fissure
Anal Warts
Hemorrhoids

Pilonidal Disease
Polyps
Rectal Prolapse
Rectocele
