Colon Cancer Surgery

Survivability of Colon Cancer Surgery

The risks associated with colon cancer surgery may depend on the type of surgery being performed (i.e., whether it is an open surgery, laparoscopic or performed during a colonoscopy). Similarly, the prognosis for colon cancer patients undergoing surgery varies based on the peculiarities of their individual cases, such as the type of cancer and the stage it is in. If you’re undergoing colon cancer surgery, talk to your doctor about your prognosis.
