Colorectal cancer is one of the most common malignant tumors in the world, and the incidence of colorectal cancer varies in different regions and races. According to the World Cancer Epidemiological Survey, the incidence of colorectal cancer in developed countries and regions such as North America, Western Europe, and Australia is the highest, reaching 36/per 100,000 to 61/per 100,000. The morbidity and mortality of colorectal cancer rank among all malignant tumors. The second place in cancer, the incidence of colorectal cancer in Central America, Eastern Europe, Southeast Asia, Africa, and other sites is lower.
Colorectal cancer has seriously threatened the general public's health in recent years. A study from Lancet Gastroenterology & Hepatology was published in 9 European countries (Belgium, Denmark, the United Kingdom, France, Italy, Ireland, the Netherlands, Slovenia, and Spain) with detection pattern data, respectively. Populations were extracted from 16 human cancer registries-based data for comparative analysis. Their analysis showed that screening detected less than 30 percent of cancers in most other countries, with more cancers in the distal colon and less in the proximal colon than non-screening cancers.
Based on the above data, colorectal cancer has become a significant hidden danger that seriously threatens the health of people all over the world, and it needs the extensive attention of the whole society. The prevention and treatment of colorectal cancer require not only the efforts of medical staff but also the active participation of everyone. Only in this way can the disease be better controlled and treated, and the health of ordinary people can be genuinely improved.
