According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), International agency for research on cancer, in the year 2018, colon cancer was among the top five leading causes of  cancer related deaths in Cambodia.  Colon cancer is highly treatable if detected early, and most colon cancers and deaths from the disease may be prevented by screening for colon polyps.
