I would like to let you know that a growth was found at the recto sigmoid juction of my mother (Age 55 Years). A surgery has been done by one of the best surgeon in India Mr Pinaki Banerjee at Woodlands Multispeciality Hospital, Kolkata on 15-05-2012. According to the biopsy report the Growth Status was T3N0. I just want to know the exact status, it it curable? Wht s this report exactly saying? Is Chemotherapy is required? Is it the ultimate solution? I just want a suggestion from your end

Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern for your mother the report that you gave here is indicate the stage of malignancy process here T3 is stand for involvement of surrounding three lymph node but in second term it must be MO rather than NO because T3NO is not possible if this is MO means there is no evidence od spread (Metastasis), hope this information helps you, have nice day.
