Colorectal cancer, commonly referred to as colon cancer, originates in the colon (large intestine) or rectum, typically as adenomatous polyps. It is unknown what causes cancer yet familial adenomatous polposis (FAP) and hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer (HNPCC) are thought to increase risk of developing colon cancer. Additionally, increasing age, inflammatory intestinal conditions, nationality, low fiber and high fat diet, diabetes, smoking, alcohol, obesity, and a sedentary lifestyle can contribute to its onset. Treatments for colon cancer include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and targeted drug therapy. Stage III colon cancer can be separated into IIIA, IIIB, and IIC. In stage IIIA, the cancer has perhaps grown to the submucosa and the muscle wall. The cancer may have spread to no more than three lymph nodes, or the cancer has not reached the muscle layer but is in contact with between four and six lymph nodes. In stage IIIB, the cancer may have spread through the serosa to 1-3 lymph nodes, may not have grown through the serosa but is in contact with 4-6 lymph nodes, or is still in the muscle layer but is connected to seven or more lymph nodes. In stage IIIC, the cancer has spread through the serosa and up to 4-6 lymph nodes, has not grown through the serosa but is in contact with up to seven lymph nodes, or the cancer has developed through the serosa into one or more lymph nodes or tissues, resulting in cancer spreading to nearby organs.
