In brief: It depends

There are many survivors.
The rate varies by stage. Early stage patients have an excellent 5 year outcome. Even stage iii patients have a survival of 70-75% with proper treatment.

In brief: Many

This depends on the stage of the cancer.
Early colon cancers have a greater than 80% chance of long term survival, and the earliest ones even better long term survival.
