Yes: However, a solitary adrenal mass seen on imaging without other evidence of metastases in a patient with a colon cancer primary is almost certainly a cortical adenoma.

Lymph nodes: Lymph nodes are the way colon cancer cells usually escape the colon. It can grow through the colon into the surroundings. Finally it can move from lymph nodes into the blood stream that flows to the liver. When the colon is examined, and if lymph nodes are involved, chemotherapy is recommended.

It depends: Some cancers grow slowly and others rapidly. At this point we cannot predict what will happen on an individual basis but as we learn more about the biology that day will come.
