Colon Cancer

About Your Care and Condition

Colon cancer refers to malignancy that occurs in the first five feet of the large intestine. Up to 95 percent of colon tumors begin as benign polyps. It can take years for a polyp to become malignant, and not all will. The slow growth of colon cancer increases its potential to invade lymph nodes or breach the intestinal wall into surrounding organs.
