Colon Cancer: Symptoms And Screening Options

Colon cancer is a slow-growing cancer with few or no symptoms in the early stages. For this reason, doctors recommend that many individuals have a colonoscopy as part of a routine colon cancer screening. Colonoscopies are not something anyone looks forward to, but they are an important tool in detecting and treating cancer early. Most cancer that is found in the early stages is very treatable. Early detection also increases the survival rate.
