The purpose of this study was to evaluate expected side effects from chemoradiation (CRT) as an important factor in treatment decisions in older adults with rectal and anal cancers. The objective was to compare side effects of older and younger adults with rectal and anal cancers treated on NRG Oncology studies. The results of this study showed older patients with these cancers undergoing CRT were less likely to complete chemotherapy and had worse side effects. Physicians can now use these results to counsel older adults prior to treatment and manage expected side effects throughout pelvic CRT.
