Second Opinion Colorectal Cancer Package in Phoenix, Arizona, United States
Colorectal cancer develops in the tissues of the colon and/or rectum, both found in the lower part of the gastrointestinal system.
This type of cancer starts in the inner lining of the colon and/or rectum and slowly grows through some or all of its layers. It typically starts as a growth of tissue called a polyp (adenoma) which can develop into cancer.
Colorectal cancer is one of the most common cancers, involving side effects that impact quality of life.

Colorectal cancer types
Every colorectal cancer patient is different. The cancer experts at Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) have extensive experience in properly staging and diagnosing the disease, and developing a treatment plan that's tailored to your specific type of colorectal cancer.
Though both colon cancer and rectal cancer can be referred to as colorectal cancer, the difference lies in where the cancer actually began: colon or rectum.
Adenocarcinoma is the most common type of colorectal cancer, but other types include gastrointestinal carcinoid tumors, gastrointestinal stromal tumors, primary colorectal lymphoma, leiomyosarcoma, melanoma and squamous cell carcinoma.
Second opinion colorectal cancer package
If you have been diagnosed with colorectal cancer but you need a second opinion, Cancer Treatment Centers of America offers a comprehensive cancer diagnostic evaluation that includes the development of a personalized treatment plan within three to five business days (depending on the number of diagnostic tests required). The evaluation includes all diagnostic tests, all consultations with medical staff, and customary hospital services.
The final cost of the evaluation will be determined after the examination of the patient’s medical records and only after the full extent of testing required has been determined, although the total cost of the evaluation will not exceed the price range quoted.
The prices are exclusive of the cost of travel to the center and the cost of accommodations while there. They would also apply in the event there is no cancer diagnosis and/or it is not possible to complete the evaluation because of other, unknown clinical conditions revealed during the course of the examination.
