The purpose of the Hispanic Colorectal Cancer Study (HCCS) is to improve understanding of colorectal cancer in Hispanics/Latinos. The study aims are to identify various factors that may increase the chance of developing colorectal cancer, including inherited factors (genes), lifestyle and environmental factors. The study will also consider the behaviors and habits of families affected by colorectal cancer. Participants will be asked to complete a questionnaire and provide a saliva sample, (optional) blood sample, and authorization to access medical records and tumor tissue that has already been collected. Researchers would like to store these specimens to use for future research studies related to colorectal cancer in Hispanics/Latinos.
