Management of colorectal cancer is a very important part of treatment as improper procedures may cause certain complications. Many decisions regarding the treatment depend on the condition of the tumour and the patient, and also the focus is on the treatment to be perform without complications. Management is done by first preparing the patient with different procedures, like stomal therapy, bowel preparation, or nutritional intervention. Then, the tumour is further evaluated, and accordingly, the treatment option is selected. Possible treatment options could be electrocoagulation, touch radiotherapy, local excision with or without neoadjuvant/adjuvant therapy; they all are local treatment methods for rectal cancer and endoscopic treatment. The results may vary with the selection of the procedure and the prognosis.
