Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of death related to cancer after the cancer of the lungs.. Colorectal cancer is localized in rectum in 53% of patients, sigmoid colon 27%, transverse colon 11.5% and colon ascendant in 8.5 % of cases. In this study, the diagnostic methods, treatment, most frequent localization, gender and laboratory parameters in colorectal cancer are studied. From 109 patients diagnosed with colorectal cancer were included in the study. 51 cases (46.8%) were men and 58 patients (53.2%) were women.
