What is colorectal cancer?

Colorectal cancer is the cancer that starts in the colon or the rectum. These cancers can also be named colon cancer or rectal cancer, depending on where they start. Colorectal cancer is one of the three most common cancers with high incidence worldwide.

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the five most common cancers in China and its incidence is still steadily increasing, which make it become a leading cause of cancer death for both men and women.
02 Early screening is important for preventing colorectal cancer Most colorectal cancers start as growth of polyps on the inner lining of the colon or rectum. A polyp can take as many as 5 to 10 years to develop into cancer. With screening, doctors can find and remove polyps before they have the chance to turn into cancer, which means regular screening can even prevent colorectal cancer.
  • Early caught
  • Early diagnosed
  • Early treated
Colorectal cancer often doesn’t cause symptoms until it is advanced. Regular colorectal cancer screening is one of the most powerful weapons against colorectal cancer. When colorectal cancer is found early, before it has spread, the 5-year relative survival rate is 90%. People who get early screened are more likely to avoid the mental pain and high costs of advanced cancer treatment.
