How long is the survival period after radiotherapy for colon cancer? How to extend the treatment
Generally speaking, radiotherapy is an important method in the treatment of colon cancer, which can effectively shrink tumors, relieve symptoms, and improve patients’ quality of life. However, radiotherapy cannot completely cure colon cancer, so patient survival is also affected by other factors.
In early-stage colon cancer, radiotherapy can effectively control the growth and spread of tumors and improve patient survival rates. According to clinical data, the five-year survival rate of patients with early-stage colon cancer can reach more than 90% after receiving radiotherapy.
For patients with intermediate and advanced colon cancer, radiotherapy can relieve symptoms, reduce pain, and improve quality of life. However, radiotherapy cannot completely cure the tumor, so the patient’s survival period will also be affected by other factors, such as the malignancy of the tumor and metastasis.

However, chemotherapy can also be accompanied by a series of side effects and damage the body, so you must choose carefully. In response to the side effects of radiotherapy, many patients will seek treatment with traditional Chinese medicine. By reducing the side effects, enhancing the patient’s immune function, inhibiting tumor cells, and enhancing the body’s sensitivity to radiation, it can increase effectiveness and reduce toxicity, making the treatment smooth. Completed, further extending the patient’s life.

As the eighth generation descendant of the Yuan family of traditional Chinese medicine in the Central Plains, Yuan Xifu, a traditional Chinese medicine oncology expert, has thoroughly studied classic medical works such as the Huangdi Neijing, Shennong’s Materia Medica, and Treatise on Febrile Diseases, combined with more than 40 years of clinical practice. Practical experience has been summarized as the “triple balance” anti-cancer theory. In clinical cases, by grasping the key pathogenesis of cancer “deficiency, blood stasis, and poison” and taking all aspects into consideration, we can strengthen the patient’s vitality, regulate qi, blood, yin and yang, and organ functions, and reestablish the balance of yin and yang inside and outside the body to help patients successfully survive the five years. The annual peak period of recurrence and metastasis.
