Caption: Colon cancer. Coloured barium enema X-ray of the human abdomen, showing a cancer (red) of the colon (large intestine, white). The cancer lies at the junction between the ascending and transverse parts of the colon. The colon runs around the abdomen and is one of the final parts of the digestive tract. This cancer has caused a polypoid (polyp-shaped) lesion on the wall of the colon. This is one of the most common cancers in North America and Western Europe. It is thought to be connected with a high fat and low fibre diet. Barium, opaque to X-rays, is used to diagnose disorders of the digestive system. To image the colon and rectum it is administered as an enema.
