Your Colon Cancer Doctors & Specialists

A doctor with a patient

You should make an appointment with a colon cancer doctor immediately if you are experiencing symptoms of colon cancer or if a routine screening test indicates the presence of precancerous or cancerous polyps. When colon cancer is detected in its early stages, patients have more treatment options available to them, increasing their chances of achieving a favorable outcome and an improved quality of life.

What doctor do you see for colon cancer?

There are a variety of specialists involved in colon cancer treatment, and the types of doctors you have depend on your treatment plan. You may see a:

  • Gastroenterologist, who will handle diagnosis and staging of your colon cancer and may provide follow-up testing during your treatment
  • Surgical oncologist and/or a colorectal surgeon, if surgery is part of your treatment plan
  • Radiation oncologist, if you are undergoing radiation therapy
  • Medical oncologist, if chemotherapy and/or targeted therapy is included in your treatment

You may also have other supportive care professionals involved in your treatment, such as a psychologist, nutritionist and social worker. All of these colon cancer doctors will work together to provide you with comprehensive care.
