Colorectal Cancer Staging

National Cancer Institute provides an update of 5-year relative survival statistics based on colorectal cancer stages and it’s as follow:

Colorectal Cancer Stage I: 85%--95%;

Colorectal Cancer Stage II: 60%--80%;

Colorectal Cancer Stage III: 30%--60%;

Colorectal Cancer Stage IV: below 5%.

Early treatment is the important factors to improve the 5-year relative survival rate of colorectal cancer. Doctors use staging information to help plan treatment and to predict a patient’s prognosis.

If you want to know the treatment plan for different stages of colorectal cancer, make online appointment or call us at 010 2066616 (KL Office) or 010 8988919 (Penang Office) now.

TNM system

The staging system most often used for colorectal cancer is TNM.

In the TNM system:

The T refers to the size and extent of the main tumor. The main tumor is usually called the primary tumor.

T1, T2, T3, T4: Refers to the size and/or extent of the main tumor. The higher the number after the T, the larger the tumor or the more it has grown into nearby tissues.

The N refer to the number of nearby lymph nodes that have cancer.

N1, N2, N3: Refers to the number and location of lymph nodes that contain cancer. The higher the number after the N, the more lymph nodes that contain cancer.

The M refers to whether the cancer has metastasized. This means that the cancer has spread from the primary tumor to other parts of the body.

M0, M1: Cancer has not spread to other parts of the body.
