Well colon cancer - primary removed but a recent liver met of 16 mm and 1 node
He was given folfiri but after first round the 5 fu was taken out due to chest pain . So nowe he's has 3 rounds of irinotecan . I was concerned that alone its not effective .
would this be regarded as widespread - a liver met and 1 node ?
can further mets appear on irinotecan ?
I meant that 1 liver met and 1 node is not high volume right ?
can prognosis b good ?
Approx as an estimate how many years etc provided further mets don't appear or mets are limited .
With stage 4, with limited mets 5-10 years ? I was thinking only 2-3 years ?
