Answer

For patients aged 60-69 years with selected stage T3 or T4 colorectal cancer, prognostic factor and 5-year relapse-free survival (based on the Mayo Clinic calculator and numbers of lymph nodes analyzed [73] ) are as follows:

  • T3N0 (11-20 nodes analyzed) – 79%

  • T3N0 low grade – 73%

  • T3N0 (≤ 10 lymph nodes examined) – 72%

  • T3N0 high grade – 65%

  • T4N0 low grade – 60%

  • T4N0 high grade – 51%

  • T3N1 – 49%

  • T3N2 – 15%
