According to some scientists tumor locationhas a great impact on survival rate. In the United States for example, the five-year survival rate for tumors in the ascending colon (closest to the small intestine) is about 63%. In the transverse colon, the survival rate is about 59%, and in the If tumor is located in descending colon, chances to survive five years after getting a cancer are the highest about 66%. For ascending colon 63 % and for transverse colon about 59%. The sooner colon cancer is determined, survival rate is higher.

Hi there,
Survivor chances in any cancer are not very good so you have to understand that no doctor will guaranty a patient that he will cure him. Doctors give their best in order to help patients get rid of this devious disease. The survivor depends also in what stage is the cancer. If the diagnosis of the cancer is done in the early stage the chance of survivor is much greater. Chemotherapy is used to prevent the cancer from spreading and to kill the cancerous cells. She may need a surgery as well. I hope that this helped you in any way. Be there for your mother because she needs your support.

All the best,
Danella
