We presented a 60-year-old man who underwent a colonoscopy examination of a polypoid mass with a wound surface of 1.1 cm in hepatic flexure. An adenocarcinoma of intestinal type was diagnosed based on the biopsy report, and patient was referred to the hospital for colectomy. In colonoscopy and biopsy, the polypoid mass was completely removed, and despite different sections of the whole specimen in the colectomy specimen, any mass was not found, while only one out of three identified lymph nodes were involved. In laboratory tests, CBC had anemia: (Hb: 10.8 mg/ dl), elevated CEA tumor marker (range: 18 ng/ml), and lipid profile disorder together with high cholesterol (300 mg/dl), indicating colon cancer manifestation.
