Understanding Colorectal Cancer - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: Cancer in the large intestine is called colorectal cancer. The parts of your large intestine are the colon, rectum, and anal canal. Most colorectal cancer starts in the colon, in small clumps of cells called polyps. Most polyps are benign, which means they contain abnormal cells that aren't cancer and won't spread to the rest of the body. They are only in the thin layer of tissue lining the inside of the intestine. If the abnormal cells become cancer cells, the polyp can grow bigger and invade deeper into the wall of the large intestine. If not treated, cancer cells can enter the blood stream and spread to nearby lymph nodes. Over time, these cells can travel to other organs and form more tumors. You may have a higher risk for getting colorectal cancer if you have a family history of colorectal cancer, have colon polyps, are age 50 or older, are obese, smoke cigarettes, aren't physically active, drink too much alcohol, or have a disease that inflames your colon such as ulcerative colitis or Crohn's disease. Symptoms for colorectal cancer can include a change in bowel habits such as diarrhea, constipation, or having stools more narrow than usual, bright red or dark blood in the stool, feeling unable to empty your bowel, belly pain, bloating or cramps, unexplained weight loss, feeling weak or very tired, and vomiting. It's important to know that these symptoms can be caused by conditions other than colon cancer. And it's possible to have colorectal cancer without any symptoms, especially in the early stages. If you have questions about colorectal cancer, talk to your healthcare provider.

"Medical illustrations are essential evidence in personal injury litigation and MLA is simply the best I've found at producing high-quality illustrations. Your illustrators are not only first-class artists, but creative and responsive. Your turn around time is as good as it gets. My clients have won over $60 million in jury verdicts and I can't recall a case which did not include one of your exhibits. On behalf of those clients, thanks and keep up the great work!"

"This past year, your company prepared three medical illustrations for our cases; two in which we received six figure awards; one in which we received a substantial seven figure award. I believe in large part, the amounts obtained were due to the vivid illustrations of my clients' injuries and the impact on the finder of fact."

"Thanks, and your illustrations were effective in a $3 million dollar verdict last Friday."
