Colorectal Cancer

Colorectal cancer is the cancer that originates in the colon or rectum, which is why it is also known as bowel cancer, colon cancer or rectal cancer depending on the exact origin point. Cancer takes place when the cells of the body grow with no control so that practically the cells from any part of the body can be transformed into cancer cells and spread to other areas. According to the American Cancer Society, it is estimated that 1 of 21 men and 1 of 23 women will suffer from colorectal cancer throughout their lives. It is actually the second cancer death cause in women and the third in men, however, for this type of cancer there has been so much advance in detection techniques and improvement of treatments that mortality rates have dropped considerably.
