The 5-year survival of individuals with colorectal carcinoma varies according to the stage at which the disease is detected. 
|Stage||Five years of survival|
|St. 0 and 1||80–90 %|
|St. 2||60–80 %|
|St. 3||50–60 %|
|St. 4||4–10 %|
In general, there is a much greater chance of five-year survival in individuals who are asymptomatic at the time of diagnosis (90%), compared to individuals who have difficulties lasting three (40%) or seven (25%) months at the time of diagnosis. Prevention and screening are therefore important in this disease.
