  • Stage III colon cancer is treatable and curable, although at a lower rate than earlier stages. Although it has spread to the lymph nodes, surgery can often cure between 30 and 50 percent of stage III colon cancer cases.

    The overall survival rate at five years for stage III colon cancer with treatment is between 43% and 83%. However, there are many variables that affect these numbers.
