Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the most common malignant tumors in Western countries. The treatment outcomes of this disease have improved significantly in recent years due to the improvement of diagnostic methods (pathohistology, radiology, nuclear medicine), screening and treatment improvements: surgical and oncological (chemotherapy, immunotherapy, radiotherapy). Additional progress has been made in the definition of prognostic and predictive factors of CRC. It is very important to emphasize the multidisciplinary approach to patients with CRC and to make a decision on optimal treatment based on evidence.
