Languages of publication
Introduction: Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third most common malignancy in men and the second most common in women. The disease constitutes a significant civilization and social problem. The aim: The aim of the study is to assess the sudy group’s awareness and knowledge about CRC, as well as about its diagnostics and treatment. Material and methods: An online questionaire form was distributed in the study group regarding issues related to CRC, and followed by statistical analysis and interpretation of the obtained survey results. Results: After analysis, we found that a significant percentage of the surveyed sample group had basic knowledge and awareness in the area of CRC, whereas about half of the respondents did not consider themselves sufficiently informed about the disease. Conclusions: Considering the scale of the problem posed by CRC, it is necessary to undertake broader action to promote knowledge about this disease and to carry out this type of research on a larger and more socioeconomically diverse population.
