Colorectal Cancer
Colorectal cancer is cancer that develops in the tissues of the colon and/or rectum. The colon
and the rectum together form the large intestine. If the cancer began in the the first four to
five feet of the large intestine (the colon), it is referred to as colon cancer. If the cancer began
in the last several inches of the large intestine leading to the anus (the rectum), it is called
rectal cancer. CRC is the third-most common and the second deadliest cancer in USA. The
American Cancer Society estimated that 143,460 people are diagnosed with colorectal
cancer and it contributes about 55,000 cases of cancer-related death each year.

The good news is that the early detection and resection is associated with five-year survival
rates of about 100% and thus it is recommended that all American over 50 shall undergo
CRC screening. CMS and major health insurance providers reimburse the colorectal cancer
screening expenses.
