Colon Cancer

Colon cancer, or colorectal cancer, is often called the "silent killer" because there are usually very few signs of its existence until the cancer is in an advanced stage. This episode of Healthline explains what colon cancer is, who is most at risk to develop colon cancer and what can be done to help prevent it.

Dr. Boris Bagdasarian, medical oncologist, and Dr. Ata Mazahari, colorectal surgeon, help shed some light on how to avoid and treat this deadly disease.
