Colorectal Cancer

Prognosis for Colorectal Cancer

The colorectal cancer prognosis (chance of recovery) depends on the following:
 
  • The stage of the cancer (whether it affects the inner lining of the rectum or colon only, involves the whole colon or rectum, or has spread to other places in the body)
 
  • The person's general health
 
  • Whether the cancer has just been diagnosed or has recurred (come back).
