About Colorectal Cancer
- Roughly 140,000 people will be diagnosed with colorectal cancer each year.
- The disease affects men and women at nearly equal rates (50.5% of cases are men).
- Colorectal cancers may start as a polyp—a growth on the lining of the colon—and develop slowly into cancer over time.
- Regular colorectal screening tests can allow doctors to find these polyps and remove them before they become cancer.
