Adenocarcinoma of the Transverse Colon taken by Dr. Julio Murra Saca This is the case of a 42 year-old male, with no significant past medical history presented with abdominal pain and no weight loss was reported. Adenocarcinoma of the colon is a primary cause of mortality and
morbidity in North America and Western Europe. Colonic cancers are the most common GI carcinomas and have the best prognosis. The 5-year survival rate is approximately 50%.
Survival rates may be improved by screening and removal of adenomatous polyps. Almost all colonic cancers are primary adenocarcinomas.
