Colon cancer is also referred to as colorectal cancer; it is a kind of cancer that starts with colon damage to the large intestine in the last section of the digestive tract. Elderly people typically suffer from colon cancer, but this may occur at any age. It normally starts as a little, noncancerous (benign) mass of cells named polyps that structure within the colon. After a period of time these polyps can turn into advanced malignant tumors that attack the human body and some of these polyps can become colon cancers. So far, no concrete causes have been identified and the complete cancer treatment is very difficult to be detected by doctors in the medical field. Colon cancer often has no symptoms in an early stage so detecting it at this stage is curable but colorectal cancer diagnosis in the final stages (stage IV), gives it the opportunity to spread into different pieces of the body, which are difficult to treat successfully, and the person's opportunities of survival become much lower. False diagnosis of colorectal cancer which means wrong treatment for patients with long-term infections and they will be suffering from colon cancer this causing the death for these patients. Also, cancer treatment needs more time and a lot of money. This paper provides a comparative study for methodologies and algorithms used in the colon cancer diagnoses and detection this can help for proposing a prediction for risk levels of colon cancer disease using CNN algorithm of deep learning (Convolutional Neural Networks Algorithm).
