Colon Cancer – Conclusion

March 8, 2022


Colon cancer is one of the more common types of cancers in the United States. In people over the age of 50, the incidence has been slowly decreasing over time. However, in people younger than 50, for some reason, the incidence has been increasing recently and the patients have especially been presenting with stage four disease. Recently, we have many more new options for patients with colon cancer for stage four disease, which has helped to increase the lifespan of such patients, including immune therapy for some patients that qualify for this treatment. In addition, we know that physical activity can be very helpful in terms of prevention of colon cancer prior to being diagnosed, as well as once you have colon cancer, we know that physical activity can help to respond better to treatment and to prevent recurrences. Diet can also be very helpful for prevention with a low fat and low animal protein diet, in addition to one daily aspirin, as well as calcium and vitamin D supplementation.
