Colon Cancer / Polyps
Colon Cancer is cancer of the large intestine or lower part of the digestive tract. Cancer in the colon usually begins as small, non-cancerous clumps of cells in the colon called polyps. If polyps are not removed during routine screenings, they may grow and become cancerous. It is recommended that everyone begin screenings at age 50 and sooner if you and your gastroenterologist determine that you are at greater risk.
