colonic cancer, survival, prognosis, TNM


The Authors describe a series of seven years long lasting colonic cancer hospital admissions, their diagnostic procedures, surgery and follow-up. They observed along the study from the beginning to the end a more careful TNM diagnostic staging, a more accurate pathologic diagnosis and more radical locoregional lymphoadenectomy. The survival rate was better when surgery had been performed electively and in the cohort of the younger patients. An accurate and more careful relationship between surgeons, pathologists and imaging specialists is very important in order to achieve the best effective integrated treatment of colonic cancer cases, accordingly with tumour biology and histopathologic background.
