Colorectal diseases: what are they?

Colorectal diseases

Colorectal diseases are disorders affecting the area of anus, rectum and colon. These diseases are common in the general population and often cause unpleasant symptoms that may seriously compromise sufferers’ quality of life.

Unfortunately, many people find it difficult to talk about them with their doctor due to embarrassment or lack of information.
