چکیده    background: patients with colon cancer are at risk of developing functional impairment. however, studies on functional status in this population are limited. objectives: the aim of this pilot study was to evaluate the functional status in patients with colon cancer and determine its association with sociodemographic and disease-related characteristics and perceived family support. methods: this cross-sectional study included 30 patients (53.3% males) with colon cancer who were followed up by an oncology outpatient clinic in a military hospital in turkey. data were collected using a personal data form, the functional living index-cancer (flic), and the cancer patient social support scale. results: the total mean flic score of the patients was 112.922.4. female gender and lower levels of family support were associated with poorer functional status (p < 0.05). conclusions: the functional status of the patients was higher than the moderate level. a greater understanding of factors associated with functional status in patients with colon cancer could provide appropriate interventions to support functional performance and improve health outcomes.
