In brief: Surgery...

If prevention and early detection efforts have failed, and colon cancer results, then surgical removal of the cancer is the primary treatment step.
Assuming the tumor has not invaded through the GI tract, then surgery may be considered curative. Adjuvant treatments can be offered appropriate to pre- and post-operative assessments.

Dr. Cattano is correct. Make sure you see your oncologist, you may need chemotherapy.

In brief: Surgery

After diagnosis and workup, surgery is the first step.
After surgery, the specimen will be examined to determine lymph node involvement and depth of invasion into the wall of the colon. If no lymph nodes are involved, treatments can range from observation to chemotherapy depending on other factors and health of patient.
