Colorectal cancer(CRC) is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer in men and the second in women worldwide. Regarding mortality data, it represents the fourth and the third cause of cancer death in men and women, respectively.In 2030, the global burden CRC is expected to increase by 60% to over 2.2 million new cases and 1.1 million deaths. Approximately 50% of CRC patients present metastasis at diagnosis or develop it during the course of the disease. Currently, CRC diagnostic procedures are invasive or show low sensitivity and specificity and thus research efforts are directed towards the search for less invasive biomarkers with higher accuracy to detect patients.
