ALERT

Due to the overwhelming surge in COVID-19 cases and the strain it has placed on health care capacity in the communities we serve, the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare has activated crisis standards of care statewide. We are open and available to see patients, but you may experience delays at our ERs, hospitals, and clinics. We appreciate your patience. Access more info on COVID testing, vaccination, visitor policy, hospitalization data, and FAQs.

Colorectal Cancer Care

Colorectal cancer means that cells that aren't normal are growing in your colon or rectum. These cells grow together and form polyps. Over time, some polyps can turn into cancer. This cancer is also called colon cancer or rectal cancer, depending on where the cancer is. It is the third most common cancer in the United States. And it occurs most often in people older than 50. 

Studies show that colorectal cancer treatment at a high-volume center like St. Luke's Cancer Institute improves outcomes, decreases complications, and prolongs survival. When you choose St. Luke’s Cancer Institute, you know you’ll receive the most advanced, effective care from Idaho’s largest, most experienced team of cancer professionals.
