Abstract



Colorectal cancer (CRC) is a worldwide problem, with an annual incidence of approximately 1 million cases and an annual mortality of more than 500,000. The absolute number of cases will increase over the next two decades as a result of the aging and expansion of populations in both the developed and developing countries.
