- Transparency Market Research
Colorectal cancer is cancer that starts in the colon or rectum. The colon and the rectum are parts of the large intestine, which is the lower part of the body’s digestive system. The colon absorbs water and nutrients from the food and stores waste matter (stool). Stool moves from the colon into the rectum before it leaves the body. Colorectal cancer often begins as a growth called a polyp, which may form on the inner wall of the colon or rectum. Some polyps become cancer over time. Finding and removing polyps can prevent colorectal cancer. During digestion, food moves through the stomach and small intestine into the colon. Most colorectal cancers are adenocarcinomas (cancers that begin in cells that make and release mucus and other fluids). Some of the commonly seen symptoms of colorectal cancer are blood in the weight loss, fatigue, stool, and irregular bowel movements. Colorectal cancer is a result of uncontrolled cell growth that occurs in the appendix, colon, and the rectum region.
According to American Cancer Society, in United States when men and women are considered individually colorectal cancer is the third prominent cause of cancer-related mortality, and the second prominent cause when both sexes are combined. With the use of fecal occult blood tests and colonoscopies, which check for blood in the stool the deaths from colorectal cancer have decreased. Ageing, fatty diet, excessive consumption of red meat or alcohol, male gender, obesity, smoking are the most commonly observed causes for colorectal cancer. Most colorectal cancers originate as a polyp, a growth in the tissue that lines the internal surface of the rectum or colon and it is common in people older than 50 years of age, and most are not cancer.
