Researchers have developed a risk-prediction model that estimates colorectal cancer survival, for up to 10 years post-diagnosis, according to a report in The BMJ. Factors associated with better survival in women included younger age, earlier cancer stage, well or moderately differentiated cancer, surgery, family history of bowel cancer, and being prescribed statins and aspirin at diagnosis. Results were similar for men.
