Colorectal Tumor Surgery
The large bowel (intestine) is made up of the colon and rectum (back passage). This part of the digestive tract carries the remains of digested food from the small bowel and gets rid of it as waste through the opening to the back passage (anus). Cells that line the colon and rectum may begin to grow out of control, forming a tumor (a growth of cancer cells).
The colon has four sections: the ascending colon, the transverse colon, the descending colon and the sigmoid colon. Tumors can start in any of these areas or in the back passage. Tumors start in the innermost layer and can grow through some or all of the other layers.
