“In the last 20 years, our approach to cancer care has improved profoundly. More patients than ever are not only completely cured, but also enjoy a better quality of life. Our diverse team of specialists continue to pioneer innovations in colorectal cancer care.”
Colorectal cancer starts in the colon or rectum and can sometimes spread to the liver, lung or the tissue that lines the inside of the abdomen (peritoneum). Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer in the United States. If you or a loved one is diagnosed with colorectal cancer, you can trust the experts at Loma Linda University Cancer Center to provide the personalized care you need.
Our physicians and support staff are nationally recognized by U.S. News and World Report for treating colon cancer. In addition, our experts believe your quality of life during treatment is just as important as treating your cancer.
