Colon: The long, coiled, tubelike organ that removes water from digested food. The remaining material, solid waste called stool, moves through the colon to the rectum and leaves the body through the anus. Also known as large bowel and large intestine. Image Source: MedicineNet, Inc.
The colon is the largest part of the large intestine, extending from the cecum to the rectum. It is 5 feet long and its function is to reabsorb water from digested food and concentrate solid waste material, known as stool.
