Excluding skin cancers, colorectal cancer is the third most common type of cancer diagnosed in the United States. Colorectal cancer occurs when abnormal cells begin to grow in the colon or rectum. While this process can take several years, most colorectal cancers begin as a small pre-cancerous growth known as a polyp. The majority of people with colorectal cancer do not know they have the disease because they have no symptoms until the cancer reaches an advanced stage.
