The data of an epidemiological analytical study (case-control) are presented, in which 609 people living in the Omsk Region took part. The prevalence of colorectal cancer risk factors associated with production factors in the population of the Omsk Region was studied. Malignant neoplasms are the second most frequent and socially significant cause of mortality after cardiovascular diseases, which forms a negative demographic balance in our country [1]. In the structure of the malignant neoplasms of the gastrointestinal tract, colorectal cancer (CRC) takes the 3rd place in terms of the incidence of morbidity and the 2nd place in terms of mortality [2]. For a long time, the statistics on the incidence of occupational CRC in our country did not correspond to reality. The reason for the development of professional CRC are somatic mutations that occur under the influence of various (mostly chemical) carcinogens. In addition, the professional cancer of this localization is affected by specialists who receive increased doses of ionizing radiation, and people working outdoors, in conditions of excessive insolation, noise, high humidity and low temperatures [3]
