As part of a recurring series, “The Ones For Wellness,” CBS 11 spotlighted the story of Dallas-based colorectal cancer patient Danny Robertson. Suddenly fainting in front of colleagues led Danny to his first doctor's appointment in 30 years, during which he underwent his first colonoscopy at age 57, and was diagnosed with stage IV colorectal cancer that had spread to his liver. His medical oncologist, Scott Paulson, M.D., of Texas Oncology–Baylor Charles A. Sammons Cancer Center, explains Danny’s case and treatment received, including chemotherapy and an immunotherapy clinical trial.

Dr. Paulson also shares tips on how to limit cancer risk through diet and lifestyle changes.
