Reducing the impact of colorectal cancer
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the most common cancers in Australia, with a risk in people under the age of 75 years of one in 18 for men and one in 26 for women. Each year, about 15 000 Australians are diagnosed with CRC, and about 4000 die from it.1 the 5-year survival from CRC is 62%, which is considerably worse than, for example, breast cancer, which has a 5-year survival of 88%.2
