Colon cancer is a preventable disease. Theoretically, all cancers develop
from benign messenger lesions called polyps. Today, the most effective
method used to reduce the risk of dying from the disease is colonoscopic
scanning and removal of polyps detected during this screening.
Other methods used for colon cancer screening are fecal occult blood test and
sigmoidoscopy. New alternatives are DNA testing from a stool sample and CT
colonoscopy (virtual colonoscopy). Lifestyle also has an impact on colon
cancer risk. Changing risk factors such as diet, exercise, alcohol
consumption, tobacco use and vitamin intake is considered an important strategy
for the prevention of colon cancer.
