6. Colorectal Cancer Definition
Approximately 0.8% of new colorectal cancer cases diagnosed in Scotland between 1st April 2015 and 31st March 2016 (based on National Colorectal Cancer audit data 2015/16) are appendiceal cancers. The presentation and management of these rare cancers is different from other colorectal tumours, therefore a decision was made by the Colorectal Cancer QPI Formal Review Group to exclude appendiceal cancer from all QPIs.
