What is Colorectal Cancer?

Malignant cells invading the tissues of the colon or rectum cause colon and rectal cancers. Colon cancer is commonly found in the 5-foot-long colon that forms a part of the digestive system. Meanwhile, rectal cancer can develop in the remaining 6 to 8 inches of the large intestine, including the rectum and anal canal.

At Wilmot Cancer Institute, we have a robust and distinguished program focused on colorectal cancer.
