Default Survival rate of colon cancer

I was wondering wha the survival rate of colon cancer is? has anyone here dealt with a family member with colon cancer?


It isnt for sure yet, but there is a possibility that my father may have this terrible disease. He is scheduled to see the dr in a couple weeks to get things checked out. just wondering if anyone here has dealt with it before,

Unfortunately I was too young to really be a part of any of the discussions about it, but my grandmother and 3 of her siblings died from it.

Thoughts and prayers for your father. Hope he doesn't have it.

It depends on the stage of cancer. A person in Stage I is more likely to survive than someone in Stage IV. Altogether, there are eight stages.

My dad had stage 2 colon cancer and it went into remission few years ago after chemo. They caught it early enough to stop it. Also everyone should get a colonoscopy done at 40 if not sooner to help catch it early enough.

My Father in Law went and got checked out as one of those routine things and the doc found trouble, lol. He had colon cancer, but it was caught in time, well, time enough to save his life. Although he has to spend the rest of his days with a colostomy bag. That was around 20 years ago and he's still going strong.

My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family. Thankfully, it is one of the most curable forms of cancer if caught early. One of my employees just went through a fight with colon cancer and came out just fine. The chemo wasn't as bad as he thought it would be and the surgeries were quick and generally pretty non invasive with quick recovery times.
