Colon and Rectal Cancer

Evaluation and Diagnosis

The most accurate method for diagnosing and evaluating these colonic processes is a colonoscopy. This endoscopic procedure should also be performed in everyone over the age of 50 in order to properly screen for colon cancer.

Occasionally, x-rays or radiologic scans using dye within the bowel are required to make an accurate diagnosis prior to surgery.
