Timely Detection Of Colorectal Cancer Is Critical, So Certain Tests Are Key

Colon cancer, also referred to as colorectal cancer, usually starts growing as a polyp. Experts recommend colonoscopy screening for men and women be performed regularly beginning at age 50. In most cases, colon cancer is not symptomatic until later stages, so screenings are important.

A common early symptom is traces of blood in feces. If this is a frequent occurrence, you should notify your primary care physician who should then order a colonoscopy following a positive test for blood in your feces.

In most cases, a pathologist will be involved to provide accurate diagnosis through examination of bodily fluids and tissues. Additionally, a radiologist will also perform imaging scans such as an MRI, PET scan, CT scan and virtual colonoscopy to further examine cancerous cell growth.

Unfortunately, medical testing errors can also be made by these specialists. If you think any medical professional has failed to properly diagnose cancer in you or a loved one, you should speak with one of our experienced attorneys.
