Common Questions and Answers about Colon cancer mortality rate


Avatar f tn Taking aspirin for 10 years could cut colon cancer risk by around 35 percent and deaths from colon cancer by 40 percent, the researchers reported Aug. 6 in the Annals of Oncology. Daily aspirin also can reduce the risk of esophageal and stomach cancers by 30 percent and deaths from these cancers by 35 to 50 percent, the investigators reported. Do a web search.

Avatar f tn I am a chinese woman and live in Calgary, I plan to go back to Hong Kong to do surgery, but the mortality rate of colon surgery is 36% is very high. Thanks !
Avatar n tn My mother had cancer removed from her colon in Jan 2010, in May 2010 she was diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer in her liver. She was given 2 to 6 months without chemo and 1 to 2 years with chemo. She is 50 years old. She is getting chemo treatments but continues to drink lots of beer and eat very little. Does the beer prevent the effectivness of the chemo?
757137 tn?1347196453 Colon cancer is a DIRECT result of the inflamation there in the colon.......I read a research paper several years ago about how high colon cancer incidence was in people with IBD. It was a big percentage getting colon cancer so START drinking decaf coffee, Taking large amounts of vitamin K2 and consider tocotrienols.....just google these 3 things individually and cancer to be amazed.
Avatar m tn I'm thinking of having an Esophagectomy and from what I read about this procedure really scares me. Had surgery before but nothing like this and I'm wondering if it's really worth the risk. Having a feeding tube hooked to an intestine after surgery doesn't sound like much fun and still having a chance of choking is what I'm trying to get away from. I discussed my questions with the surgeon and he said I was the most negative person he talked to all day.
Avatar n tn It is not a waste of time to go to a GI specialist with such symptoms so they can check you for colon cancer and also for a blockage of your intestines. If caught early, the cure rate for colon cancer is considered quite good, whereas if caught late, the cure rate is quite dismal, humanly speaking. And having nothing but mucus is definitely not a healthy thing. Your bowels need to move. Please don't wait.
Avatar n tn There is a family syndrome - hereditary nonpolyposis colon cancer HNPCC where family members have a high rate of those three cancers.

Also, studies have proven that there is no link between statin use and the incidence of new cancers, just an myth spread by the anti-statin crowd.

Avatar m tn They followed patients for two years. Those that were not cirrhotic or coinfected had no higher a mortality rate than the general population. Well, isn't that exactly what you would expect? If you are not cirrhotic, it's extremely unlikely you will die of liver disease within a two -year time frame. You need a much longer study to examine this issue.
Avatar f tn I am 32 with both bradycardia and tachycardia, I have had these symptoms for about 3 years. The doctors still haven't found a definite diagnosis. I am thinking that I might have sick sinus syndrome. I have done a lot of reading up about this over the internet. I am scared. The mortality rate is at 50 percent. I have ALL of the symptoms that are listed. I don't know what to do. Is there anyone out there who knows more about this? Do I still have a chance at a normal life?
Avatar f tn The higher the score the less chance of survival, the higher the mortality rate. In interpreting the MELD Score in hospitalized patients, the 3 month mortality is: * 40 or more — 71.3% mortality * 30–39 — 52.6% mortality * 20–29 — 19.6% mortality * 10–19 — 6.0% mortality * <9 — 1.
Avatar m tn Needless to say, with my family history and the fact that there is such a high mortality rate among men with breast cancer , I am very concerned and feel like there is no one who cares to talk about it.

Avatar n tn For elderly patients with aortic stenosis undergoing nonemergency valve replacement in recent years, the perioperative mortality rate is reported to be as low as 4 to 5%, and the surgical mortality rate is 5 to 10%, even if heart failure is present. The perioperative mortality rate is higher for patients undergoing aortic valve replacement combined with CABG than for those undergoing aortic valve replacement alone (4 to 6% for patients in their mid-70s, 10% for patients in their 80s).
Avatar n tn He also has Stage 1 or 2 prostate cancer. What do you think his mortality rate is? Hours, days, months?
Avatar f tn It depends on which form of supraventricular tachycardia someone suffer from, and more important, if someones heart is healthy or not. A healthy heart can usually tolerate supraventricular tachycardia without problems, and usually even ventricular arrhythmias without problems. An unhealthy heart can get problems with a rapid heart rhythm, through different mechanisms.
Avatar f tn I too have rectal bleeding and first did an occult blood test (positive times three) before agreeing to the colonoscopy. A colonoscopy, if you are cleaned out properly (which I learned I wasn't, so now they ordered a barium enema) is good for the doctor looking for polyps and more and he/she can actually go ahead and remove polyp(s) if found for biopsy. I became convinced to do the colonoscopy, even though it had not been ten years from the last one (I'm in my 30s).
Avatar f tn does coughing and wheezing more {as asmatic anyway} have any bearings on colon cancer
446474 tn?1446347682 Patients whose AFP levels reached 1,000 ng/mL had a 12% one-year survival rate and only a 1% five-year survival rate. These patients had an adjusted hazard ratio (HR) of mortality of 4.35 compared with HCC patients with AFP levels below 10 ng/mL. Furthermore, patients’ mortality risk grew incrementally with increasing AFP levels: mortality risk was 1.50 (95% CI, 1.22-1.83) in patients with AFP levels between 10 and 100 ng/mL and 2.23 (95% CI, 1.80-2.
Avatar n tn You are roght to seek medical advice if you are noticing rectal bleeding since this is never normal. For possible causes google rectal bleeding and click on to one of the many sites - the Medicinenet site is particularly informative. Colon cancer normally occurs at age 40+ although there have been extremely rare cases mentioned in Medhelp when the disease has been noticed at age ~20 - but, as mentioned, this is most rare.
