Colon cancer symptoms and treatment

According to the American Cancer Society, colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States. However, colorectal cancer can be treated or even prevented if caught early. Colon cancer can produce a wide range of symptoms, but some of the most common ones include:

  • Bleeding from the rectum
  • Blood in the stood
  • Frequent vomiting
  • New and lasting constipation or diarrhea
  • Persistent abdominal pain and/or bloating
  • Unexplained weight loss

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, see a doctor as soon as possible. It is also important to note that some patients with colon cancer show no symptoms at all. For this reason, regular colon cancer screenings beginning at age 45 are a vital part of your continued health.

Colonoscopies are the most effective method for your doctor to view your colon and look for any areas of concern. During the procedure, your physician will use a small catheter (thin, flexible tube) with a small camera attachment to examine your colon. This allows your doctor to detect any polyps (abnormal growths) in the colon or rectum, and remove them before they turn cancerous.

A doctor’s prescription is needed in order to schedule a colonoscopy. If you already have a doctor’s order, you can schedule your colonoscopy with us by calling (866) 999-5162.
