When It Comes to Cancer, We Share a Common Interest

Colon Cancer Care at Allegheny Health Network

Colon cancer, also known as colorectal cancer because it can also affect the rectum, is one of the most common types of cancer in the US – affecting more than 200,000 men and women.

However, thanks to improvements in prevention, early detection and treatment, it’s also one of the most survivable. In fact, more than a million people consider themselves survivors of colon cancer.

Here at the Cancer Institute, your team of renowned cancer doctors includes Dr. James McCormick, who is one of 95 doctors at Allegheny Health Network, representing 31 medical specialties, who were recently recognized by Pittsburgh Magazine and Best Doctors, Inc., for being among the region’s best doctors.
