Colon Cancer

Colon cancer is a type of cancer that forms in the cells of the colon, the lower part of the digestive system.

Symptoms of colon cancer may include: a change in bowel habits, such as diarrhea or constipation, that lasts for more than a few days; a feeling that you need to have a bowel movement that's not relieved by having one; or rectal bleeding with bright red blood.

Doctors in the GW Cancer Center’s Gastrointestinal Cancer Program use cutting-edge immunotherapies and minimally invasive robotic surgery to treat colon cancer, which is often detected during routine colonoscopies.
