Colorectal Cancer

Colorectal cancer, also known as bowel cancer, is a type of cancer that begins in the colon or rectum. It typically starts as a growth of tissue called a polyp, which can be noncancerous (benign) or cancerous (malignant). Over time, cancerous polyps can grow and invade surrounding tissues or spread (metastasize) to other parts of the body.

Colorectal cancer often develops slowly over several years, allowing time for screening and early detection. Symptoms may include changes in bowel habits, blood in the stool, abdominal discomfort, unexplained weight loss, fatigue, and weakness. However, early stages of colorectal cancer may not produce noticeable symptoms, underscoring the importance of routine screening, especially for individuals with risk factors such as a family history of colorectal cancer, age over 50, inflammatory bowel disease, or certain genetic conditions.

Treatment for colorectal cancer typically involves surgery to remove the cancerous tissue, along with chemotherapy, radiation therapy, targeted therapy, or a combination of these treatments, depending on the stage and extent of the cancer. Early detection and timely treatment are crucial for improving outcomes and increasing the chances of successful management of colorectal cancer.
