What is Colorectal cancer?
Colorectal cancer, or “Colon cancer,” is one of the most common types of cancer in the United States today. Symptoms include abdominal pain, bloody stool, and a noticeable change in bowel habits. People who are at high risk for this disease are usually those over the age of 50 - this is why doctors start to recommend regular colonic screenings after that age. If colon cancer is suspected, testing for it usually starts with a fecal occult screening, which is usually followed up with a colonoscopy.
A colonoscopy is a procedure where the doctor uses a flexible viewing tube to see inside your colon and take tissue samples of affected areas for testing. If it is caught early, it can easily be treated and even cured without the use of radiation or chemotherapy. Talk with your doctor if you think you might have this type of cancer, and help to prevent it by getting regular screenings, especially if you are at higher risk.
