Abstract

Objective: The incidence of colorectal cancer in developed countries has been found to increase with age. Early diagnosis and screening decrease the mortality rates in colorectal cancer. This study aimed to use inflammatory markers neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio (PLR), and red blood cell distribution width (RDW)as new biomarkers for early diagnosis and screening in patients with colorectal cancer.
