Our cancer specialists at Group Health Medical Centers have cared for thousands of colon cancer patients. Our multidisciplinary teams set a high standard for compassionate care — with medical expertise, advanced technology, and the best of the latest cancer research.
Small growths (polyps) can develop inside the colon. While most will not become cancerous, some polyps might develop abnormal cells which grow out of control.
Colon cancer doesn't usually cause symptoms. It is also one of the most preventable cancers. Through regular screening, our doctors can find colon polyps early — before they become cancerous or before cancer has spread. If colon cancer is found early, it is easily treated.
Patients with three different types of cancer share their diagnosis and treatment experiences at Group Health.
