The colon makes up most of the large intestine which is approximately six feet long. In terms of risk factors, a person’s chance of developing colon cancer increases as he or she gets older. What most people don’t realize is that colon cancer is almost completely preventable. Join colorectal surgeons, Dr. Holly Sheldon and Dr. Daniel Fish, Baystate General Surgery, for a discussion about how the colon works, the symptoms, screenings, different treatments of colon cancer and most importantly, how you can prevent colon cancer.
