Caption

Cancer of the colon, gross specimen. Malignant tumour in the last part of the colon causing obstruction of the intestinal tract. Several cancerous polyps, abnormal growths of tissue projecting from a mucous membrane, can also be seen. The ones seen here are red upon a stalk and are hence known as pedunculated. Certain dietary habits, such as a diet high in fat, are implicated in the development of colon cancer. The cancer usually causes no symptoms for years, but will eventually involve cramps, anaemia and abnormal bowel movements.
