Patients who underwent surgery to treat colon cancer had significantly better outcomes and a lower disease stage at presentation than patients diagnosed through other means in a recent study.
Researchers performed a retrospective review of 1,071 patients who underwent surgery for colon cancer between January 2004 and December 2011 at Massachusetts General Hospital. Two hundred seventeen patients were diagnosed via screening colonoscopy, and postoperative staging, survival and disease-free interval were compared between them and patients diagnosed using other methods.
