2 doctors agree

In brief: Still good prognosis

Stage ii still confined to wall of colon , most of the centers close 90% 5 yr survival rates along with chemo.
Will have healthy normal life.

In brief: Yes

So, if they are "cured" then the colon cancer is not the limiting factor in life expectancy.
Most stage 2 colon cancers are treated with surgery only. Some "high risk" receive chemo as well. The cure rate for stage 1 and 2 colon cancer is high.
