About Colorectal Cancer Liver Metastasis
Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer worldwide. Due to high prevalence and sometimes late diagnosis, cancer of the colon/rectum has become the second most common cause of cancer-related death in the U.S. Many colorectal cancers are likely to spread to other organs, with the most common site of metastases being the liver.
The best outcome for liver metastasis from colorectal cancer is the surgical removal, also called resection, of the liver tumors. Unfortunately, only 30 percent of patients are eligible for surgery.
