colorectal cancer
Colorectal cancer is cancer that forms in the large intestine (colon or rectum), in the lower part of the body’s digestive tract, a long twisting tube that extends from the mouth to the anus. This tract is part of the digestive system, a complex process that enables the body to break down and absorb food and eliminate waste. For more information see the Colorectal Cancer Treatment and Colorectal Cancer Screening pages.
