"Colorectal cancer affects about 5% of the population, with up to 150,000 new cases per year in the U.S. alone. Cancer of the large intestine accounts for 21% of all cancers in the U.S., ranking second only to lung cancer in mortality in both males and females. It is, however, one of the most potentially curable of gastrointestinal cancers." -- Johns Hopkins Digestive Disease Library
