Colorectal cancer is cancer that occurs in the colon or rectum. It is the second leading cancer in the United States. Early stage colorectal cancer doesn't always cause symptoms. If symptoms do occur they may include blood in or on your stool, stomach pain, or losing weight and you don't know why.
A regular colorectal cancer screening is one of the best ways to prevent colorectal cancer.
