Stage Iv 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. 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. Stage IV colorectal cancer can be divided into stages IVA and IVB. In IVA, the cancer has spread to distant organs and lymph nodes such as liver, lung, and ovary. In IVB, the cancer has spread to nearby organs and lymph nodes and has spread to an organ that is not close to the colon (such as liver, lung, or ovary) or has relocated into the lining of the abdominal wall.
