Bowel cancer, light micrograph of a section through an adenocarcinoma of the bowel. The tumour is on the right of the image with inflammatory more normal tissue to the left. Bowel cancer, or colorectal cancer, includes cancers of the colon and rectum. More than 95 out of every 100 bowel cancers diagnosed are adenocarcinomas. Adenocarcinomas evolve from polyps, which may be present for ten years or more before malignancy develops. Colorectal cancer is locally invasive but metastatic spread may be evident before local growth produces symptoms. Magnification: x150 when printed at 10 centimetres wide. Human tissue.
