Q. My mom is 58 years old and healthy. Her doctor recommends colon cancer screening even though she doesn’t have any symptoms of cancer. How is colon cancer screening beneficial?
A. Colorectal cancer develops from abnormal growth in the lining of the colon or rectum, called polyps. The primary goal of colorectal cancer screening is to identify polyps and remove them before they become malignant. This helps to stop colorectal cancer before it starts to develop and increases the chance of successful treatment.
