Rectal cancer: There are many factors to consider to determine the prognosis of stage IV rectal cancer. The age at diagnosis, sex, race, grade of the tumor, known metastasis, and what form of surgery or other treatment has already been done all affect what the long-term prognosis is. Your best bet is to discuss your particular situation with your oncologist, who can give you the best advice. Good luck.
