Colon Cancer Diagnosis

Colon Cancer Diagnosis comprises of a series of tests that will confirm the existence of cancer.

Cancer of the rectum and colon for the most part is adenocarcinoma cells that arise from the epithelial coating of the intestine. It may commence as a benign polyp which may then become a malignant one that can invade and damage normal tissues and metastasize to adjacent organs. Cancer cells can transfer away from the prime tumor to other parts of the body through the bloodstream and the lymphatic system.
