Caption: Colon cancer and lymph tissue, light micrograph. This is a form of adenocarcinoma, a cancer of the glandular lining that is found in many different organs, including the digestive tract. Colon cancer is one of the most common cancers in North America and Western Europe. It is thought to be connected to a diet high in fat and low in fibre. This image shows a tumour embolus (centre) within a lymphatic channel in the colon's submucosa.
