Be Well: Confronting Colon Cancer

During the program, noted medical experts will explain how a healthy colon functions and how polyps form and can turn into cancer which, if not detected early enough, can spread to other organs in the body.  We’ll follow a Tallmadge man as he goes through one of the most common, effective, but often misunderstood, screening and diagnostic procedures for colon cancer – the colonoscopy.  Then, we’ll share the experiences of a Shaker Heights woman as she is diagnosed with colon cancer and undergoes surgery to remove the cancerous tumor.  And we’ll also meet a woman from Avon Lake who is part of a family with a history of a particular type of colon cancer known as Lynch Syndrome.
