Colon cancer is a disease that occurs when cancerous cells form in the tissues of the colon. It is more likely to occur in people over the age of 50, who have a history of colon polyps, or have a family history of colon or rectal cancer. Symptoms of this cancer may include blood in the stool, vomiting, and unexplained weight loss. Several tests are used for colon cancer screening, including colonoscopy, sigmoidoscopy, digital rectal exam, and fecal occult blood test.
