Colorectal cancer (CRC) is classified based on the stage of the disease at diagnosis. CRC has been divided into localized, regional metastasis, and distant metastasis. Localized CRC is defined as cancer that has not yet metastasized. Regional metastasis refers to cancer that has spread to the lymph nodes near the colon or rectum. Distant metastasis refers to cancer that has spread to other organs of the body such as the lungs. There are two other widely used systems to classify CRC. The first groups CRC into stages -IV and the second use a lettering system (A-D). GlobalData considers stage -II & A-B as localized, stage III & stage C as regional metastasis, and stage IV & stage D as distant metastasis. The KRAS Tests market includes Colorectal Cancer Stages of Diagnosis, Sanger Sequencing Tests; Nucleic Acid Amplification Tests (NAATs), and Other KRAS Tests.
