Colorectal Cancer: All that You Need to Know

What is Colorectal Cancer?

Colorectal cancer is the cancer of the rectum and colon. Colorectal cancer occurs when the cells in the colon and/or the rectum develop a DNA error that causes them to mutate. These damaged cells become cancerous and continue to grow into a tumor, which has the ability to destroy the nearby tissue and spread the cancer to other parts of the body.
