Colon cancer or colorectal cancer, is often called the "silent killer" because there are usually very few signs of its existance until the cancer is in an advanced stage. This episode of Healthline explains more what colon cancer is, who is most at risk to develop colon cancer and the different things that can be done to help prevent colon cancer from starting in the first place.
Dr. Boris Bagdasarian, medical oncologist, and Dr. Ata Mazahari, colo-rectal surgeon, help shed some light on how to avoid and treat this deadly disease.
