ABSTRACT

Neoplasms of the colon, when compared with abdominal growths in general, are not common, still they are of sufficient frequency that they can not be left out of consideration when the surgeon is confronted by tumors of moderate size in any region of the abdominal cavity. When we take into consideration the wide range of mobility possessed by the colon, we at once must recognize the fact that position or location can be no determining factor in the diagnosis. These growths may be fixed in a given locality, which may or may not be at the point of their origin and the normal locality of the organ bearing them. They may be very movable and occupy a position at a considerable distance from their initial stage by displacing the organ that harbors them. While these neoplasms are usually palpable, they may be concealed and can not be felt even after
