ABSTRACT

Colon cancer is the third leading cause of cancer deaths in Jamaica. Unique features may exist in this predominantly black population that impact management. Additionally, there is rationalization of some resources that may impose restrictions on the widespread applicability of some international guidelines. We have developed here guidelines that are consistent with the best available evidence and which are appropriate to use in our local context.
