When Colorectal Cancer Is Considered As Cured
By. Pharmacist. Farzana Hasin

Colorectal cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer-related deaths of the World. However, early diagnosis often leads patients to complete cure from colorectal cancer.

Stage 0 colon cancer may be treated by removing the cancer cells, often during a colonoscopy. For Stage I Colorectal cancer, Stage II Colorectal cancer, and Stage III Colorectal cancer, more extensive surgery is needed to remove the part of the colon that is cancerous.

In general, when Colorectal cancers are treated at an early stage, many patients survive at least 5 years after their diagnosis and treatment. This is called the 5-year survival rate.

If the colon cancer does not come back within 5 years after successful treatment, it is considered to be as cured. Stage I, II, and III cancers are considered potentially curable. In most cases, stage IV cancer is not considered curable, although there are exceptions.
