Hello, folks. My mother has been diagnosed with colon cancer. I think that she has no metastases, but I know that this cancer is extremely serious. I would like to find out something more about the life expectancy for this type of cancer. Can anyone provide me with more info? Thanks.

Hi. I am sorry to hear that. It all depends which stage your mother’s cancer is. Stage I usually means that cancer cells have spread to other layers of mucosa. The five year survival rate is about 93%. In stage II cancer cells have spread to nearby rectum or other organs. Five year survival rate is between 72 and 85%. In stage III, besides rectum or nearby organs, lymph nodes are affected as well. The rate is between 44 and 83%. In stage IV, metastases are present. This rate is about 8%. I hope this helps.
