Abstract
The prevalence of colorectal cancer (CRC) places it in the top five cancers worldwide and is the second most common cause of cancer related death. Developed populations have a 5-6% lifetime risk of CRC(l). The South African Cancer Registry (last updated 2004) shows a 1/98 and 1/150 life time risk for developing CRC in males and females respectively (2).
