Colorectal cancer generally seen in elderly around 5th-6th decade of life and rarely seen in pediatric age group with an incidence of only 1.3-2 cases per million noticed. Due to the nonspecific symptoms and lack of awareness often diagnosed at advanced stage which results in poor prognosis. Children with altered bowel habits not responding to symptomatic treatment should be evaluated with simple digital rectal examination, followed by sigmoidoscopy or colonoscopy if required.
