Causes & Prevention

Did you know that colon cancer, also referred to as colorectal cancer, is the second-leading cancer killer of men and women in the US? The cancer occurs in the colon (or large intestine) or in the rectum, and it often develops slowly. Before the cancer develops, an abnormal growth called a polyp develops on the inner lining of the large intestine or rectum. While polyps begin as a noncancerous growth, some can turn into cancer over time.

Screening Methods

There's no longer a need to hide from screening. Procedures have improved and now, along with colonoscopy, there are different methods available that are recommended by the American Cancer Society.
