Colorectal or Colon Cancer

Colon cancer is a kind of cancer that begins in the large intestine (colon). The colon is the digestive tract's last portion.

Colon cancer is most frequent in elderly people, although it can attack anybody at any age. The most frequent beginning point is polyps, which are tiny, noncancerous (benign) clusters of cells that grow on the interior of the colon. Over time, some of these polyps may grow into colon cancer.

Polyps can be so small that they create little if any, symptoms. As a result, doctors recommend routine screening tests to help prevent colon cancer by finding and eliminating polyps before they turn cancerous.

Colon cancer arises when healthy cells in the colon's DNA become mutated. A cell's DNA includes instructions that guide the cell on what to do.

Colon Cancer Treatment

Surgery, radiation therapy, and medication therapies such as chemotherapy, targeted therapy, and immunotherapy are all available to help manage colon cancer.

Colon cancer is also known as colorectal cancer, which is a combination of colon cancer and rectal cancer, which starts in the rectum.
