Colorectal cancer (CRC), also known as bowel cancer and colon cancer, is the development of cancer from the colon or rectum (parts of the large intestine). A cancer is the abnormal growth of cells that have the ability to invade or spread to other parts of the body. Colorectal carcinoma is the second leading cause of cancer death. The Present Study aimed to know the hospital based incidence of various types of Colorectal carcinoma with the different histopathological variants to know the significance of staging in prognosis
