The colon is an important part of the human digestive system and the growth of malignant tissue in the colon is known as colon cancer. This type of cancer is very much dreaded and it can harm the digestive system a lot.

The colon cancer is a type of malignant tumor which can be formed from the inner wall of the large intestine. The tumor breaks down the tissues and therefore spreads into the other parts of the body.

Symptoms of colon cancer:

The common symptoms of colon cancer are: constipation, abdominal pain, blood spots in the stool, diarrhea and any kind of unusual bowl movement.

Colorectal cancer (also known as colon cancer, rectal cancer, bowel cancer or colorectal adenocarcinoma) is cancer from uncontrolled cell growth in the colon or rectum (parts of the large intestine), or in the appendix.

Genetic analysis shows that essentially colon and rectal tumors are genetically the same cancer.

Symptoms of colorectal cancer typically include rectal bleeding and anemia which are sometimes associated with weight loss and changes in bowel habits.

Most colorectal cancer occurs due to lifestyle and increasing age with only a minority of cases associated with underlying genetic disorders. It typically starts in the lining of the bowel and if left untreated, can grow into the muscle layers underneath, and then through the bowel wall.
