Two colorectal cancer questions
Anon_182278 posted:
From the onset of colorectal cancer to its very late stages, how many years does it usually take? Also, can a benign growth cause trouble in the lower track as much as one that is not benign? Thank you for you response.

1. This varies quite a bit.

2. If the benign growth is large, it can cause issues with stool passing around/through it.
