In 2016, there were 2,089 colorectal cancer deaths, accounting for 15% of all local cancer deaths. About 85% of bowel cancers originate from intestinal polyps. The process of colorectal cancer evolving from polyps to cancer is about ten years. As long as the polyps in the intestines are detected and removed during this period, it is the most effective way to prevent colorectal cancer.
