Colorectal cancer is one of the most leading causes of death worldwide. Furthermore, early-onset colorectal cancer increased the last decades, affecting both males and females below the age of 50, and has lower survival rates. Prevention and detection at early stages contributes to reduced mortality rates. Liquid biopsy is a powerful tool in prevention and prediction of the disease. Liquid biopsy refers to collection of blood and then, detection and study of circulating tumor cells, circulating-tumor DNA as well as exosomes. This review reports major and recent issues of liquid biopsy and the contribution as diagnostic tool in colorectal cancer.
