Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer in the world with about 1.4 million new cases reported in 2012. In Indonesia the reported incidence in 2008 was about 1.8/100,000 population with 10.3% mortality rate. In order to cope with the problem, prevention and early detection should be done. However, to do that, we should know the profile of colorectal cancer in Indonesia. This study aims to know about the profile of colorectal cancer based on a single centre report.
