Colorectal Cancer

Cancer of the colon and rectum is a disease in which cancerous cells develop in the tissues of these areas. Colorectal cancers can occur in individuals of any age, however, it is most common in people over the age of fifty. It is highly treatable when it is found early, but it may go undetected during the early stages because many people who have it do not experience symptoms.
