Managing the long-term consequences of colorectal and anal cancer

  • Comment

Nearly 43,000 people a year are diagnosed with a colorectal or anal cancer in the UK. With treatment, 60% of them will survive for more than five years and whilst the majority will not develop any long-term effects, some will suffer from acute consequences of treatment.

To help you support these patients, Macmillan has developed new guidance on managing the long-term consequences of colorectal and anal cancer. Compiled especially for healthcare professionals, it details ways you can help people to self-manage and features key advice for clinical management. You can order or download the free guidance here.
