I am new to the discussion community here. My husband 49 years old was just diagnosed with colon and rectal cancer he has a tumor in the colon as well as the rectum. We do not know yet if it has spread to anyother parts yet. We meet with the surgeon in the morning and hopefully find out what stage we are in and if it has gone anyplace else. i have been reading other posts trying to absorb as much information about this cancer as I can. I look forward to posting back on here as this is the begining of our journey into colorectal cancer and scared we are but god is strong and will guide us through so please keep us in your prayers as I will pray for everyone on here.View Thread
My husband whom is 49 years old has just been diagnosed with colorectal cancer we do not know what stage it is yet I hope it is not bad. They found a tumor in the transverse colon and a tumor in the rectum the doctor said this was unusual I have tried to find out information on this but they separate the cancers into two different catagories i am so confused. I would like to find out the prognosis or what the probable cure rate percent is ? Would anyone happen to have experienced something like this?View Thread
