IMPORTANCE The American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) has proposed the inclusion of pretreatment serum carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) levels (C stage) into the conventional TNM staging system of colon cancer. The latter proposal has yet to be widely adopted because of the lack of long-term survival estimates of after C-stage incorporation into AJCC staging. OBJECTIVES To evaluate whether long-term overall and cancer-specific survival is affected by inclusion of C stage into the standard… CONTINUE READING
