Screening, Diagnosis & Treatment of Colon Cancer

Before a doctor can perform a diagnosis, they will need to perform a complete physical examination, along with collecting information about your past medical history and family medical history. Usually, a diagnosis cannot be made until after a colonoscopy or a barium enema x-ray.

Colon cancer treatment will ultimately depend on the stage of the cancer, age, health status, and other characteristics. Treatments for colorectal cancer include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, or a combination of the treatment options. If the cancer is found early, surgery offers a high possibility for a cure.
