What Is Colon Cancer?
A colon cancer diagnosis can be very overwhelming. The dangers, prevention and treatment of colon cancer are still not widely known and are not discussed because colon cancer affects parts of the body that people often find embarrassing or even forbidden to talk about.
Lack of general public awareness of the disease has limited funding for research, kept colon cancer patients unaware of their treatment options and prevented early detection and treatment in far too many cases. Be informed and prevent this disease and its consequences.
In this section you will find general information about colon cancer, including basic statistics, disease terminology, screening methods and resources. CCA has also included links to what we feel are some of the best resources available on the web for information about colon cancer, staging, and treatment.
