Sažetak

ABSTRACT. A significant increase in the incidence and mortality of colorectal cancer has
been detected during the last twenty years. Despite the progress in medical practice and
science there has been no indicative change in the 5-year survival of patients. The
knowledge that an adequate health care organization and prevention can decrease these
defeating data, prompted the start of national programs for early detection of colorectal
cancer. New cognitions in the fields of diagnostics and endoscopy make diagnosis faster and
more accurate. Surgical therapy, which is supported by constant technical progress,
represents the basis of cancer treatment, while the new and more effective chemotherapy
and radiotherapy have an additional and important therapeutical role. The above mentioned
methods and knowledge indicate that there is a possibilty in curing a large number of
patients and succeeding in the struggle against colorectal cancer.
