Colon Cancer Screening
Colorectal cancers start in the lining of the large bowel. Most colon and rectal cancers begin as a small growth on the bowel wall: a colorectal polyp or adenoma. These growths are usually benign, but some develop into cancer over time. Most colon and rectal cancers can be prevented if polyps are found and removed. Colonoscopy is the best test to find and remove colon and rectal polyps before they turn into cancer.
