Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers in the United States. Until recently, colon cancer found on endoscopic examination has been treated entirely with surgical resection.

In this review we will discuss the expanding role of endoscopic resection in the treatment of colon cancer.
