In brief: CRC

It is cancer of the large intestine (which includes the colon and the rectum, the part labeled #5 in the illustration).
It is the third most common cancer for both sexes and one of the few for which there is successful screening methods. Usually starts in a polyp and can be associated with several inherited traits.
