About Colon Cancer
Colon cancer is the third most common type of cancer in the United States. However, it is also one of the most curable, and death rates have been dropping steadily over the past few years. Thanks to increased awareness and simple, early detection, colon cancer can often be caught in its early stages when treatment can be most effective.
From family history to diet, these are some of the most common risk factors that could potentially increase your chances of developing colon cancer.
About half of all colon cancers can be detected by a simple test in your doctor’s office. Learn about this and other tests used to find colon cancer, even at its earliest stage.
There are a number of different treatments for colon cancer, and the right one for you will depend on your specific case. You and your doctor will work together to determine which one gives you the best chance for recovery (or which one is the best fit for you).
The Cancer Center at Middlesex Hospital offers many resources and support services to help our patients and families coping with colon cancer get the information, make the connections, and find the services they need.
