5 year survival rate - Just finished Chemotherapy for Stage III colon cancer

    
Asked by Unregistered on Wed 19, Mar 2008 10:08pm

What does "5 year survival rate" mean? My husband just finished chemo for stage 3 colon cancer, after he had a colon resection done and I have been trying to read up on the statistics but I find them very confusing.
