Colon cancer can be a dangerous, scary diagnosis. That is why our team here at Jules E. Garbus, MDPC is here to help you through every step of your diagnosis, treatment, and follow up care.
Colon cancer typically begins in the large intestine as small clumps of cells called polyps. Over time, these polyps can become cancerous if they are not removed or treated with antibiotics.
For this reason, it is recommended to take the proper preventative steps such as routine colonoscopies and polyp screenings to encourage early detection and best reduce the risk of developing cancer.
It is possible to be diagnosed with colon cancer at any age, though it is more common in older adults. There are various treatment options available such as radiation therapy, chemotherapy, targeted therapy, immunotherapy, drug treatments, and/or surgery.
