1 Splenic Flexure Transverse Colon ! Abdominal Cavity ! Descending Colon Sigmoid Colon Rectosigmoid Junction Rectum Anus The named parts of the large bowel and its superimposed surface relations in the abdomen and pelvis. The large bowel can be represented as a convoluted tube-like structure which has four layers, named from inside out, the mucosa, which is the lining of columnar epithelial cells from which colorectal tumors of the "adeno" type arise, the submucosa, the muscle layer, also called the muscularis layer, and the outer connective tissue layer, the serosa.

In Western populations, non-polypoid/non-adenoma related cancers probably account for one-third of the incident cases, whilst in Japan three-quarters of incident cases belong to this group (Bedenne et al 1992; Kur,unoto WId Oohara 1(95). Some believe these cancers to originate from normal colorectal mucosal cells ("de novo"); however, others believe that these cancers evolve from nat adenomas. The nat adenoma-adenoGu'cinoma sequence has recently also been documented in chemically induced colon tumors in rats, and interestingly, about one-third of all neoplasms were of the 11at vW'iety, a proportion similar to so-called "de novo" cancers in Westem populations (Rubio and Shetye 1(94).
