    Prognosis is the long-term outlook or survival after therapy. Overall, about 50% of patients treated for colon and rectal cancer survive the disease. As expected, the survival rates are dependent upon the stage of the cancer at the time of diagnosis, making early detection crucial.

    About 15% of patients present with stage I disease, or are diagnosed with Stage I disease when they initially visit a doctor, and 85-90% survive. Stage II represents 20-30% of cases and 65-75% survive; 30-40% comprise the stage III presentation, of which 55% survive. The remaining 20-25% present with stage IV disease and are rarely cured.

  • That depends on the stage it's diagnosed and I think more than anything else but also on the person.
