    Any kind of cancer is dangerous if left untreated. This type of cancer affects more than 100,00 Americans a year and is nothing to play with. More than 50% of patients with colon cancer aren’t diagnosed until the cancer has reached a more advanced stage. This poses a challenge to conquer colon cancer but there is hope.

    Colon cancer, also known as colorectal cancer, is the 4th most common cancer in men and women in the U.S.

    It is often curable, if caught in an early stage. However, if not caught in time, it can be lethal. It is most common in people older than 50, and your risk of developing colon cancer increases with age.

    Treatment and severity are also dependent on what stage the cancer is. See this website for a stage-by-stage breakdown of colon cancer stages and how dangerous they are:
