What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About™ Colorectal Cancer: New Tests, New Treatments, New Hope
by Mark Bennett Pochapin, M.D.

New Tests, New Treatments, New Hope

"This book is a powerful weapon in the fight against colorectal cancer. You can learn how to reduce your risk, recognize the symptoms, and identify the most effective treatment options. It provides the information I wish I had before my husband became ill....Please read this book. It could save your life-or the life of someone you love."

-From the Foreword by Katie Couric

"I wrote this book to talk openly and forthrightly about colorectal cancer, to continue the forward momentum to conquer this major killer, and, in doing so, to save more lives. I plan to give you the very latest information on colorectal cancer, as well as the best screening and treatment options, in a way that you can understand and use. We know so much more about colon and rectal cancers than we did just a few years ago. Although words on paper can go only so far, I will provide you with the resources you need to prevent this disease or contend with its potentially devastating presence, should it ever trespass into your life."

by Dr. Mark Pochapin

Each year, nearly 150,000 Americans are diagnosed with colorectal cancer and over 50,000 men and women die from this surprisingly common disease. The amazing truth is that colorectal cancer is often preventable. And when found in its earliest stage, cancer of the colon and rectum can be fully cured 90 percent of the time. So why is the mortality rate for colorectal cancer-one of the most treatable and preventable cancers-so alarmingly high? How can you fight this disease? Find out...


Now Dr. Mark Pochapin, a colon cancer specialist and a nationally renowned screening advocate, will explode the myths and misconceptions about the third most common-and second most deadly-form of cancer in the U.S. Learn the latest scientific findings on:

  • Prevention: How knowing your family history, a diet rich in folic acid, a regular exercise regime, and decreased alcohol intake can help reduce your risk of getting colorectal cancer
  • Screening: the importance of screening at age 50-and how to know if you should be checked earlier
  • Detection: Which colorectal cancer test is right for you, including colonoscopies, virtual colonoscopies, and FOBT tests
  • Diagnosis: How to cope emotionally with test results and find support
  • Treatment: The benefits, side effects, and risks for traditional, alternative, and cutting-edge therapies
  • Aftercare: How to stay healthy and vigilant for the warning signs of recurrence.
With this potentially deadly disease, what you don't know can hurt you. Don't let apprehension, anxiety, or embarrassment overcome your common sense. Take control over your health with WHAT YOUR DOCTOR MAY NOT TELL YOU ABOUT™ COLORECTAL CANCER.
