The colon is the longest part of the large intestine and the rectum is the last few inches of the large intestine before the anus. Polyps which are benign lumps may form on the inner wall of the colon and rectum. However, certain types of polyps may develop into cancer and should be removed if they are detected. This cancer is known as the cancer of the colon or rectum.
Colorectal Cancer is the third most common cancer in the world amongst men and second most common cancer amongst women. In 2018, there were 1.8 million new cases diagnosed.

Thus, further investigation will be required to determine the cause of elevated CEA reading
