This is something I thought might be of interest...why I don't know guess I just have an inquisitive mind.

I was searching on the various "T" depths of tumors in the colon. So I though I wonder how thick is the colon wall.

It took me a while to find this but.. did you know the colon wall is between 1.4mm - 1.7mm in thickness? Which is around 1/16th of an inch.

So the depth a tumor between a T1 and a T4 is virtually around 1/16th of an inch or less but what a difference that small amount can make.

I think I said that correctly.. at least that is how I understand it to be.
