Caption: Cancer of the caecum. Endoscopic view of a cancerous growth (upper centre) in the caecum, the pouch that connects the ileum (small intestine) to the colon of the large intestine. This tumour is an adenocarcinoma, a type of colorectal cancer arising from glandular epithelial tissue. Adenocarcinoma accounts for 90-95 per cent of all colorectal cancers. Certain dietary habits, such as a diet high in fat, appear to be significant risk factors. Here, it has also led to a discolouration of the wall of the intestine known as melanosis coli.
