Colon cancer spread to small intestine, what do you suggest?

Internal Medicine - Oncology

In brief: Depends

Did it grow directly into the small bowel or spread as a metastasis? In one or in many places? Was it just diagnosed or is it a late recurrence? Any previous chemo? What's the patient's general health? The patient's oncologist should be able to weigh all the options and come up with a treatment plan.
If this is about you, best wishes.
