Colorectal cancer occurs when malignant cells are found in the colon or rectum. Because colon cancer and rectal cancers have many features in common, they are sometimes referred to together as colorectal cancer. Cancerous tumors found in the colon or rectum also may spread to other parts of the body.
The doctors in Colon & Rectal Surgery and Gastroenterology remind you about the importance of life-saving screening.
