Colorectal Cancer

Colorectal cancer develops in the final part of the digestive system: the longest part of the large intestine (the colon) and the tissue (the rectum) that connects the large intestine to the anus. Most colorectal cancers develop slowly over several years, usually starting as a pre-cancerous polyp on the lining of the colon or rectum, then growing into the tissue wall and possibly blood or lymph vessels.
