Can occur..: But hopefully your colon cancer was found before it could spread to the liver. Colon cancer can spread to the liver in any person, irregardless if you gave cirrhosis or not. See your oncologist to evaluate what the best treatments may be for your specific condition. Blood testing and x-ray tests such as ct, mri, or pet scans are indicated for some people.
