Özet

BACKGROUND: Colorectal cancer during pregnancy is uncommon. Most patients present in late pregnancy, mid the tumor is localized to rectum in up to 85% of cases. Delayed diagnosis due to confusing significant lower gastrointestinal symptoms with pregnancy-associated gastrointestinal changes is a common feature. From the increasing intraabdominal pressure during delivery, a tumor can prolapse through the anus mid develop incarceration mid strangulation, but that is seen extremely rarely.
