Genetics Of Colorectal Cancer: Disease Bioinformatics
Colorectal cancer, commonly referred to as colon cancer, originates in the colon (large intestine) or rectum, typically as adenomatous polyps. It is unknown what causes cancer yet familial adenomatous polposis (FAP) and hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer (HNPCC) are thought to increase risk of developing colon cancer. These two conditions do not make cancer inevitable, but rather establish a predisposition for the individual to develop colon cancer. FAP and HNPCC are both gene mutations that are passed down from one generation to another. However, both of these conditions can be detected through genetic testing. Additionally, increasing age, inflammatory intestinal conditions, nationality, low fiber and high fat diet, diabetes, smoking, alcohol, obesity, and a sedentary lifestyle can contribute to its onset. Treatments for colon cancer include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and targeted drug therapy.
