Colorectal cancer is on the rise, with younger patients affected and a higher number of patients overall. Multimodal treatment has led to significant improvements in survival and quality of life with a majority of patients now amenable to a cure, including selected patients with peritoneal or solid organ metastases. Better screening, diagnostic accuracy and refined prognosis, as well as advanced therapeutic concepts, including multimodal neoadjuvant treatment, tailored surgery and multiple lines of adjuvant therapy, all contributed to the significant progress observed in clinical care and outcomes. The present Special Issue addresses the complexity of colorectal cancer and its contemporary management, with several topics highlighted: diagnostic and prognostic markers, cutting-edge imaging, total neoadjuvant and adjuvant therapy, state-of-the-art surgical approaches, including laparoscopic, robotic and transanal surgery, cytoreductive surgery and intraperitoneal chemotherapy, adjuvant chemo- and immunotherapy and best palliative care.
