What are the treatment options for stage 0 colon cancer?

Surgery is the most common treatment for stage 0 colon cancer. Minor surgery may be able to remove all of the cancer if it's in stage 0. In later stages, surgery might require removing part of the colon. Chemotherapy can be used to target the cancer cells, and is most often used when the cancer has spread beyond the colon. Radiation therapy may also be used.
