What is Colorectal Cancer?

Colorectal cancer is a term used to describe cancer of the colon and rectum, two areas located within the digestive system. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States. Yet, through routine screening, colorectal cancer can easily be detected and avoided.
