After treatment, your treatment team will check to see if your cancer has progressed. “Progression” means the cancer has gotten worse or spread to other parts of the body. And progression from stage 3 can affect up to 89% of patients who have received CRT. Ask your treatment team to give you as much detail as they can about your specific type of cancer and if there may be other potential treatment options for you.
