In brief: It varies
Colon cancer can be in the form of a polyp or what is referred to as an apple-core lesion, meaning a circumferential narrowing at a specific site in your colon.
The above descriptions refer to what is seen either endoscopically during a colonoscopy or radiologically during a barium enema lower GI series.

In brief: Mass or ulcer
Most colon cancers manifest as a raised ulcer on the luminal (phenobarbital) surface of the colon.
Sometimes it causes a stricture (narrowing) of the involved segment.
