Abstract

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the second leading cause of cancer death, and is a significant cause of morbidity and mortality. This is a growing topic discussed on public media networks due to the worldwide rise in CRC incidence among people under 50 years of age and recent American Cancer Society recommendations for earlier CRC screening. Colonoscopy remains the most effective method of detection and removal of neoplastic polyps.
