Endoscopic Image of Colonic Polyp

Numerous environmental factors can increase the risk of
colon cancer, presumably by modulating these molecular
pathways. While colon cancer in an advanced and incurable
stage often produces clinical findings, premalignant
adenomatous polyps and early, highly curable, colon cancer
are often asymptomatic. This phenomenon renders adenomas or early cancers difficult to detect by clinical presentation and provides the rationale for mass screening
of asymptomatic adults over 50 years old for early detection and prevention of colon cancer.
