The approximate 5-year survival rate for colorectal cancer patients in the United States (all stages included) is 64.4%. [23] Survival is inversely related to stage: approximate 5-year relative survival rates are as follows:

  • Localized disease: 89.9%
  • Regional disease: 71.3%
  • Distant disease: 14.2%
