The stage of Colon Cancer is determined based on the extent of spread of tumor through the wall of the colon and presence or absence of lymph node metastasis. In order to check both of these areas, she needs to have removal of her Cancer and the regional lymph nodes and submit them to a pathologist for examination of this specimen. Based on a normal CT scan, she does not have stage-4 disease.

So far no evidence for distant disease, however in putting together a treatment plan many other details will be needed. Other medical conditions and overall functional status will be also critical. Her oncologist will be best to clarify.
