Yes and no

If you a have a true familial form (generally this means multiple 1 st degree relatives have it. Usually happens at an earlier age) then yes the course of disease is similiar. if by familial you mean 1 relative had it, then no it is variable and progress differently.

In general...

Stage 4 colon cancer patients have only a 5% 2 yr survival rate. There's no way to better define an individual's life expectancy. Good luck to all involved.

Palliative care

Liver
we're working to improve palliative care for patient.s Early palliative supportive care has shown greater quality of life. Patients with less aggresive care (chemo) at the end-of life have shown to survive 2-3 months longer. Palliative care is not end-of life. it's focused on comfort, pain control, support and a better transition to end-of-life. Most patients prefert to pass at home and not alone

What can be done for colon cancer spread to liver when patient has low ejection fraction heart?

Difficult

Ejection_fraction
Sorry. It sounds like a difficult situation. Options may be chemotherapy, intra-arterial chemotherapy injected onto the liver, radiofrequency ablation performed in radiology, etc. Depends on size & location of tumor in the liver. Need to coordinate carefully with the treating physians, Oncologist & Cardiologist. Best wishes.
