Background: Despite the immunoscore benefit function as a prognostic tool in colorectal cancer, no study reports its reason. This study tried to identify the relationship between the immunoscore and the incidence of lymphovascular invasion and clinical stage in colorectal cancer patients as a mechanism for immunoscore to predict the outcome of colorectal cancer. Methods: This is correlational with a cross-sectional study that analyzed medical record data and laboratory results. Immunoscore was collected from an independent private laboratory, and other data (gender, age, diagnosis, tumor location, lymphovascular invasion) were from medical records from the Private Hospital colorectal cancers registry. Data collection was carried out from October to December 2022. We performed data analysis with the Chi-Square statistical test with a significant p-value<0.05. Results: The results showed that the majority of subjects had tumor locations in the rectosigmoid (25%) and advanced stages (65%) with lymphovascular invasion findings (80%). Chi-Square statistical test shows the result of p = 0.025 and p = 0.64, respectively, lymphovascular invasion and clinical staging. Conclusion: This study shows that the immunoscore has a dependent relationship with the incidence of lymphovascular invasion and an independent relationship with the clinical stage of TNM in colorectal cancer patients. The application and use of immunoscore are beneficial for clinicians to give suggestions and understanding to patients about their choice of therapy also outcome for the patient.
