Together known as colorectal cancers, colon and rectal cancer are the third most common form of cancer in men and women, resulting in nearly 50,000 deaths each year. Colon cancer is more prevalent than one would expect, which can lead to lack of the warning signs.
The signs and symptoms of colorectal cancer depend on where the cancer is found, how it is progressed and how it affects the organs and tissue. One sign or symptom alone may not be sufficient to assess the cause, but if there are many signs a doctor can get a better idea of the possible cause.
