Methods: This study was conducted at the Bangladesh Institute of Research and Rehabilitation in Diabetes, Endocrine and Metabolic Disorders (BIRDEM) Hospital Dhaka from 20.10.2007 to 20.10.2008. Histologically confirmed patients of carcinoma colon among all patients undergoing colonoscopy during the mentioned period were included. Their epidemiological and clinical history and investigation reports were recorded. The mean and percentages were calculated. Result: Out of 1297patients undergoing colonoscopy for various indications, 140 patients had histologically proved colorectal carcinoma. Of the 98 (70%) were male and 42(30%) were female. The mean age of CRC in males was 47.07 years (SD 16.779), ranging from 15-80 years. The age of female patients was ranging from 14 - 70 years (mean 41.41 SD 14.654, range 14-70).
