In brief: It is possible

Several factors regarding colon cancer liver metastasis predict long term survival.
Where the mets present when the original tumor was discovered? How many mets are present? Is the CEA level over 200? How large are the liver mets? How many lymph nodes were positive from the colon specimen? Can all of the liver lesions be removed or ablated? Are there metastasis present elsewhere ie: the lungs.
