Colorectal cancer is the common name for colon cancer and rectal cancer. Colorectal cancers are the second most common cancer in Europe, and the third most common type of cancer in Finland after prostate cancer and breast cancer. Approximately 2,800 Finns fall ill with colorectal cancer every year, and the incidence is estimated to grow in the future, mainly due to the ageing of the population. However, the prognosis for colorectal cancer is good: 61% of the people falling ill are alive in five years from the diagnosis, and the survival rates are predicted to improve when screening increases and therapies improve.
