Hi there, My husband, age 57 and in otherwise great health, was diagnosed and had surgery for colon cancer
. The diagnosis was stage IV colon cancer
, as the mucinous carcinoid tumor had spread to his retroperitoneum. The prognosis is not good (ie., the doctors said that without doubt, this is a terminal disease with survival marked at 3-6 months). But I have been reading of survivors - some living beyond the magic five year milestone! What is the exact prognosis of this?
