Objective: of this study was to explore the survival rate of colon cancer in male and female patients. Methods: This study was a retrospective cohort study. All data were retrieved from medical records of colon cancer patient at Roi Et Hospital from January 1, 2013 to December 31, 2015. The vital status of all cases was collected until end of the study. Descriptive statistics, Kaplan-Meier method and Log-rank test were used for data analysis. Results: Of 318 colon cancer patients, there were 51.89 % female, 48.11% male with the mean age of 61.59 ± 13.08 years. The total follow-up time was 5,861 person-months, median survival time 19.0 months (95% CI=12.20-36.01). At the end of study 163 patients were death with mortality rate 2.78 per 100 person- months. Of 153 male colon cancers, the median survival time was 17.4 months (95% CI=13.10-31.21) with the cumulative 6 months, 1, 2, 3 and 5 years survival rate were 75.53%, 62.95%, 45.95%, 40.23% and 40.23 % respectively. Of 165 female colon cancers, the median survival time was 22.8 months (95% CI=13.12-37.33)  and the cumulative 6 months, 1, 2, 3 and 5 years survival rate were 80.92%, 67.29%, 48.61%, 41.02% and 33.63 % respectively. In Conclusion the five years survival rate of male patients was 40.23% and female patients was 33.63%. This study showed that five years survival rate of colon cancer in male was higher than female.
