I. INTRODUCTIONA. Overview of the studyColon cancer ranks 6th overall leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the Phillipines , 5th among males and 7th among females. An estimated 2,963 new cases, 1,548 in males 1,415 in females, together with 1,567 deaths will be seen in 1998. Colon cancer increases markedly after age 50.A malignancy in the colon or rectum can be referred to as colorectal cancer. Strictly speaking, a malignancy in the colon is colon cancer and a malignancy in the rectum is rectal cancer. Most colon cancers occur on the left side in the sigmoid region.The colon is a muscular tube approximately 6 feet long connecting the small intestine to the rectum. The right side of your body has the "ascending colon" which receives waste from the small intestine. This ascends upward to the "transverse colon" which crosses over the small intestines and descends on the left side of the body as the "descending colon". At the bottom the colon again crosses the belly toward the rectum as the "sigmoid colon". Finally, the sigmoid colon empties into the 8-inch rectum.When the cells that line the colon or rectum start to proliferate in an uncontrolled manner it is called a tumor.
