Cellular Classification of Colon Cancer

Histologic types of colon cancer include the following:

Adenocarcinoma (most colon cancers).

Mucinous (colloid) adenocarcinoma.

Signet ring adenocarcinoma.

Scirrhous tumors.

Neuroendocrine[1]. Tumors with neuroendocrine differentiation typically have a poorer prognosis than pure adenocarcinoma variants.
