In brief: Contained

No evidence of invasive carcinoma on the pathology report for colon cancer means that the cancer appears to be contained and has not spread, such as into the muscle layer of the colon and beyond.
This should imply a higher likelihood for cure if one follows the recommendations of one's oncologist.
