Rectal Cancer Outcomes
Five-Year Survival Rate
The graph below shows the proportion of patients who survived a minimum of five years after initial diagnosis. The survival rates are displayed by stage of disease at initial diagnosis.
This information represents the data from our cancer patients diagnosed over a three-year period. The graph shows the proportion of patients who survived a minimum of five years after diagnosis. The survival rates are displayed by stage of disease at initial diagnosis.
Moffitt’s Cancer Registry and Planning departments provided our data and we then compared the data to the United States as reported by the National Cancer Data Base, which is maintained by the American College of Surgeons’ Commission on Cancer.
Note: These survival rates take into account individuals who may have passed away from other medical conditions or natural causes, not just from cancer. These survival rates are unadjusted and may not account for differences across hospitals in patients' ages, other medical conditions, or other factors that may affect survival.
