Diagnosing Colon Cancer
Discover a whole-person, patient-centered approach to colon cancer treatment. Here, a multidisciplinary care team will empower you with information, listen to your concerns and provide you with advanced options to fight cancer. Once our team has made an accurate colon cancer diagnosis, we will work with you to develop an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.
With colon cancer screening, your doctor can find and remove precancerous polyps (adenoma) or early stage cancer (when it is generally considered to be more treatable). Your doctor may use some of the following screening and diagnostic tests and tools during the colon cancer screening process: physical examination, blood tests, colonoscopy, sigmoidoscopy, biopsy, CT scans and endoscopic ultrasound.
