Signs and treatment of colon cancer. Colon (colorectal) cancer begins in your colon (large intestine), the long tube that helps carry digested food to your rectum and out of your body. Some plants are full of nutrients, minerals and vitamins essential for our body to be healthy.
Colon cancer develops from certain polyps or growths on the inside lining of your colon. Health care providers have screening tests that detect precancerous polyps before they become cancerous tumors. Colon cancer that is not detected or treated can spread to other parts of your body. Thanks to screening tests, early treatments and new types of treatment, fewer people are dying from colon cancer.
