I was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer in March 2006. The tumor did not go through the wall, but I had six out of 13 nodes positive. My surgeon felt very positive I would be okay. I went through 12 treatments of chemo — 5-FU (5-fluorouracil) with oxaliplatin — in case there were any microscopic cells. What I would like to know is whether stage IIIC colon cancer is different than stage IIIC for other cancer – breast cancer, for example. Are survival rates different for every type of cancer?
Cancer staging system is based on the size of the tumor, the presence or absence of regional lymph node involvement, and the presence or absence of distant metastatic disease.
In general, stage I cancer refers to cancer that is highly localized, meaning that it is confined to one certain area or part of the body. It does not involve lymph nodes or distant sites. Stage II cancer refers to larger tumors that do not involve distant organs, but may or may not involve the local lymph nodes. Stage III tumors always have lymph node involvement, and in stage IV there is evidence for distant metastases.
