Abstract:

Despite the last advances recorded in the surgical methods and adjuvant therapy of colorectal cancer, the total median 5-year survival rate of patients with radical therapies is just 62 %, and the local recurrence and/or positive lymph nodes appear in more then 90% of patients with failure of treatment. The purpose of the first section of this review article is to evaluate prognostic factors in colorectal cancer from clinical and histopathological  aspects, in order to reassess and arrange data from this domain and predict the span of life for a patient diagnosed with this neoplasic disease. The study of prognostic factors in colorectal cancer reveals firstly their great variety, and thus the challenge to predict the accurate survival time after diagnosis, and secondly, impossibility to modify some unfavorable prognostic factors, but still having the chance to improve the survival rate by early recognition of favorable factors. TNM staging at the moment of diagnosis remains the most important clinical prognostic factor of survival and  regional lymphodes invasion the most important histopathological one.
