The most common form of colon tumour, colon cancer, can be diagnosed in about one in five people, but many people have never been diagnosed with the disease.
In India, about 5.5 million people are estimated to be living with colon cancer and around a quarter of them are women, according to a survey by the Indian Medical Association.
This makes India one of the most expensive countries for colon cancer treatment and the risk of survival is high, according the World Health Organization (WHO).
According to the Indian Institute of Science and Technology (IIT), about 5,000 colon cancer cases are diagnosed every year.
The cancer is caused by a type of protein called T-cell lymphoma.
Its growth can take several years.
Cancer is one of many diseases that affect people’s health.
It affects about two million people worldwide and causes some 40,000 deaths.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) says that about half of colon cancers are incurable.
In India, many people are scared of going to a doctor.
Many fear going to hospital.
Some fear going back home and being diagnosed with another form of cancer.

In India the incidence of coloreecal cancer is on the rise and its prevalence is higher than the global average.
India has a huge number of cancers that are diagnosed and treated in the hospitals.
These include: Colorecta cancer, which is the most common type of cancer, with about 50,000 cases a year.
Other forms include: Endometrial cancer, a cancer of the lining of the uterus, and endometrial sarcoma, a tumor that develops in the lining between the uterus and the fallopian tubes.
Coloreckys cancer, the most aggressive form of coliform cancer, affects about 1 in 2,000 women in India.
The disease affects about one out of four women and is most common in the rural areas of India.
Colorectum cancer is the leading cause of colitis, a chronic inflammation of the colon.
It can cause symptoms such as diarrhoea and constipation, but it also causes cancer of both the bladder and rectum.
Lung cancer is a type that affects about 4% of the population.
Endometrial neoplasia, also known as endometriosis, is a disease that affects up to 20% of women in the world.
This affects about 20% women globally.
It usually affects a woman’s ovaries, uterus and ovaries and can cause infertility.
Other forms of cancer include melanoma, lymphoma, lung cancer and bladder cancer.
These cancers can cause the most severe effects, with an estimated 80% of cancers being fatal.
It is estimated that about 200,000 people die from colon cancer every year worldwide, mainly from the cancer of endometrium, which grows inside the lining, causing a condition known as intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR).
IUGR is a serious condition that affects the health of the endometrically active womb.
IUGRs growth causes the uterine lining to shrink and can eventually lead to a miscarriage.
