What to think about
Colorectal cancer often comes
back, even after treatment that seemed successful. If you had colorectal cancer in the
past, pay close attention to your body and see your doctor regularly. Tell your
doctor about any changes, such as decreased appetite, bloating, or an increase
in the size of your belly.
Getting regular checkups and colon cancer screening is the best way to prevent colorectal cancer. Finding and removing colon polyps helps prevent colon cancer. In addition, colon cancer screening helps find cancer early, making a cure more likely.
