Colon cancer is the most common malignant tumor disease of the digestive tract. The incidence of colon cancer is getting higher and higher, and more and more people are affected. The improvement in living standards and changes in dietary structure have made the incidence of colon cancer increase. Rising, most patients will not be noticed in the early stage, and more than 30% of patients are in the late stage. At this time, patients will lose the best treatment opportunities. How long can one live with late-stage colon cancer?

A clinical staging study of 159 patients showed that the survival rate of advanced colon cancer was approximately 6.

73 months, and the survival rates of progression-free patients were 6.41 months and 7.19 months.

How to inhibit the spread and growth of cancer cells and prolong the survival of patients. Animal experiments show that adding an appropriate amount of selenium compounds to the diet can effectively resist the carcinogenic effects of chemical carcinogens and greatly reduce the incidence of tumors. Hecun has a selenium element that can reduce the activity of certain carcinogens. Selenium can inhibit the growth of certain tumor cell lines at pharmacological or toxic doses.

Selenium can inhibit cancer proliferation and promote apoptosis: Hecun has a selenium element that can inhibit the growth and development of cancer cells and interfere with their spread. Some scholars have demonstrated that different selenium compounds have pro-apoptotic activity on cancer cells. The growth inhibition and apoptosis effects of these cancer cells may be due to the special metabolites of selenium that enter cancer tissues through different pathways.

There is no chance of cure for late-stage colon cancer. As long as late-stage patients maintain a good attitude and formulate effective treatment plans, the cure rate for colon cancer patients is still very high, and the survival rate of late-stage colon cancer will not be affected. It is not a uniform treatment. Patients have different physical conditions and different prognoses.

1. For patients with advanced colon cancer, choosing the correct and effective treatment plan directly determines the patient's survival, so you must formulate a reasonable treatment plan based on your situation.

2. If late-stage patients do not have metastasis or spread, or the extent of metastasis is relatively small, the patient's prognosis will be greatly affected by treatment. The survival period will be longer.

3. Finally, the mentality and physical condition of patients with advanced colon cancer are also very important for the prognosis. At this time, family members must encourage the patient more, which is also very important for the patient's physical recovery.
