Colorectal carcinoma/prognosis

From WikiLectures

The 5-year survival of individuals with colorectal carcinoma varies according to the stage at which the disease is detected. [1]

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.
