Mohammed Neamah Kadhim [2]


Abstract: Background: The frequency of colorectal carcinoma is inadequate in Iraq compared to the western world. The carcinoma of colon and rectum is usually disturbing among the individuals of older age groups, whereas it is less frequent in younger age groups. This study was based on age, gender, site of primary tumor and histopathological type of colorectal cancer cases. Methods: This study was carried out on 105 colorectal carcinoma patients who were admitted to Al-Amal National Hos-pital for Cancer Treatment Baghdad during the period from January 2012 to July 2016. All the demographic and clinicopathological data were collected from the medical records of the patients. The detailed information were entered into tabular sheet and statistical analysis was performed. Results: During these five years, out of total (2059) cases of cancer, 105 (5.09 %) patients with colorectal carcinoma were admitted for colectomy or hemicolectomy. The percentage of middle age group with colorectal cancer was risen up sharp-ly in comparison with the older age group. The ratio of male to female patients affected with colorectal cancer was 64: 41 (1.6: 1). Rectum was the most common site among the total cancer lesions. Histopathological findings showed that the frequency of poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma was the highest among colorectal cancer patients.
