Hi, and thank you for coming here with your question.
Widespread metastases usually means that the cancer has spread to many different parts of the body. This usually includes liver, brain, bone, or distant lymph nodes. It can also be other places. Does this help? Do you have further questions?
Hi my dad has surgery in march for colon cancer he was a dukes c. But recent pet scan showed a 16 mm liver met and 1 aortocaval node . So I was wondering . They have started irinotecan.
is this widesprwad ?can the 2 mets be killed ?
What I get confusse over is yjat there is 1 liver met on the edge of liver they say ( which can be operated they say) but due to the node the are doing chemo . Would it not make sense to hae removed these then do
chemo.? ppl with 5,6 mets even have them
what would prognosis be like for such a situation ?
I see. What if the node does not respon to chemo ? The node is 10 mm. Is that large ?
