Colon cancer refers to cancer in the large intestine (colon), a part of the alimentary canal. Most of the colon cancer cases begin as noncancerous (benign) small clumps of cells, which are called adenomatous polyps. In the due curse of time, some of these adenomatous polyps can become colon cancers. Symptoms of colorectal cancer include alteration in bowel habits, leading to constipation or diarrhea or a change in the constancy of the stool, rectal blood or bleeding in the stool, constant abdominal discomfort, such as pain, gas or cramps, and others.

Rising prevalence has increased the need for effective diagnostic techniques for colorectal cancer. The emergence for molecular diagnosis, in-vitro diagnosis, and cytogenetics have also enhanced the tools for the detection of colorectal cancer. Furthermore, government and private awareness programs encouraging early detection and colonoscopies are expected to surge the global colorectal cancer screening market.
