How long does colon cancer take to develop from stage to stage?  How long have you had it by the time you can see it?

If someone got colon cancer and never got treatment of any sort, how long before they would show signs of being sick and how long would they live for?

A long time,,: This disease takes a while to develop like 20-30 years, unless it's associated with one of the polyp syndromes that cause it to appear much earlier. Usually it presents in the sixth decade of life (50-60) as fatigue and or change in bowel habits and abdominal discomfort. By this time it's usually advanced and 5 year survival is compromised.

How long can you live after kidney failure if you receive no treatment?

Hard to answer: A lot would depend if any residual kidney function exists, and the disease acuity.
