Unfortunately that question is much too broad to be answered simply.  There are many unanswered questions such as what stage is the disease?  What have you been told by the doctors?  Have you gotten a second opinion?  The list goes on and on.  The good news is that survival rates of colon cancer have greatly increased over the years.  Early detection and successful treatments have saved many lives.  Sorry there isn't an easy answer.
He had second opinion but will definitely have to do chemo and maybe rad. but the cancer has spread to rectum that is what bothers me.

if the cancer is spread to the rectum , then it will have better chances to spread to other organs including the liver and lungs...

chances are less than u even think

i am sorry 4 ur husband
