Colorectal Cancer

Colorectal cancer, also known as Bowel cancer, refers to cancer that originates in the large bowel (colon) and the back passage (rectum). The specific treatment for bowel cancer depends on the location where the cancer begins within the bowel. It's one of the most common types of cancer in the UK.
