Pathology
1 doctor agrees

In brief: Colonoscopy, imaging

And biopsy.
A lesion may be detected on colonscopy or barium enema or the more recent ct scans. The lesion is biopsied and the tissue examined by a pathologist to make the diagnosis. Colon cancer may be suspected if there is blood in stool, either obvious or occult.
