Metastatic Colon Cancer
Metastatic Colon Cancer (sometimes also called Duke's D Colon Cancer) is the most advanced stage of the disease. By this point, the cancer has broken through the wall of the colon and has spread to other organs. It is not uncommon for the disease to have also advanced into the lymph nodes. The two most common destination organs are the liver and the lungs.

What Is the Survival Rate for Metastatic Colon Cancer?
The generally cited 5-year survival rate for this stage is approximately 8%. While this number is valid over the general population of patient's, it is impossible to predict how a given individual will react to treatment. Many factors, including the patient's age, overall health, and the degree to which the disease has spread, all can influence the individual patient's prognosis.Contact us for a Free Consultation at Free-Consultation@Colon-Cancer-Law.com

Waiting May Bar Your Claims?
A victim of medical malpractice only has a limited period of time (determined by Statutes of Limitations) in which to file a medical malpractice claim in court, or they are forever barred from succeeding on their claim and from recovering. There may also be notice requirements that apply as well. Given the complexities of medical malpractice cases and the need for a thorough medical and legal analysis before it can be determined that a claim should be filed, you must contact an attorney about your case with sufficient time to allow the attorney to complete a review of the case in a timely fashion. Anyone who suspects they may be a victim of medical malpractice should thus immediately contact a qualified attorney.
