Stage Iii Rectal Cancer Ajcc V6: Disease Bioinformatics
Rectal cancer originates in the rectum (the last inches of the intestinal tract) and is commonly marked by symptoms such as unintended weight loss, extreme fatigue, rectal bleeding, and variations in appetite and frequency. It begins in small clumps known as polyps, most commonly benign, that may develop into cancer overtime. Although its cause is unknown, smoking, inflammatory bowel disease, an inactive lifestyle, a high-fat and low-fiber diet, as well as old age are common risk factors for rectal cancer. Treatments for rectal cancer include surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy. Stage III rectal cancer can be divided into three groups: IIIA, IIIB, and IIIC. In stage IIIA, the tumor has invaded the submucosa and/or the muscularis propria. At this time it may have metastasis on 1-3, or 4-6, nearby lymph nodes or on the subserosa, mesentery, nonperitonealized pericolic or perirectal tissues without nodal metastasis. In type IIIB, the cancer has invaded from the submucosa through the muscularis propria into the pericolorectal tissues or has grown into the surface of the visceral peritoneum. Metastasis has occurred on multiple lymph nodes. In IIIC, the cancer has invaded other organs and structures as well as has broken through the muscularis propria into the pericolorectal tissues, or has broken the surface of the visceral peritoneum. In all of the stage III sub-phases of rectal cancer, there is not metastasis on distant organs, tissues, or lymph nodes.
