Colon Cancer (adenocarcinoma) is the most important gastrointestinal cancer, with a high and rising incidence in the developed world. The yearly incidence in USA is about 50 new cases per 100.000, in Finland slightly above 20. The main symptom of a colon cancer in the caecal region is occult and anaemia. Colonoscopy is the diagnostic method of choice, and should always be done in elderly patients with bleeding or unexplained iron deficiency anaemia. Surgical treatment if possible is curative, radiation and medical therapy are palliative.
