Stage of cancer: This sounds very serious. Cancer is staged to help understand the treatments and expectations for success with treatment, part of the risk/benefit analysis. Stage 4 is cancer that has spread or progressed significantly outside the organ where it started. Stage 1, 2, 3 and 4 have diminishing expectations for treatment success. Take a friend with you to next appointment. You have choices. Be well. ...Read more
Poor: When one finds metastasis to multiple sites from a primary colon cancer the lesion was probably detected late in its development. If the patient is in good condition the primary if not resected should be removed. Chemo with FOLFOX and possibly avastin (bevacizumab) should be attempted. Kidney lesions are extremely rare but can respond to chemo and if causing complication should be resected. ...Read more
Possibly: Removal of liver metastases can sometimes be helpful for patients with colon cancer. A remarkable amount of cancer can be removed usually after there has been some response to chemotherapy.

Hmmmm: You know, the terms "stage iv" and "cure" are not usually put in the same sentence by oncologists because in theory, most stage IV cancers are incurable. That said, I have seen a handful of patients who had a limited number of metastases to the liver or lung and are in remission years later after aggressive surgery and chemo. Don't lose hope. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
