Colorectal cancer -- cancer that develops in the colon or rectum -- is the third most common cancer affecting men and women in the United States. These cancers often begin as a growth of tissue, or polyp, in the lower part of the digestive or gastrointestinal system. Over many years these polyps can slowly change into cancer.
