In brief: Lack of surveillance
Patients who have had previous colorectal cancers have risk of recurrence or metastasis based on their original diagnosis and treatment.
Lack of careful follow up increases your risk of missing recurrence or metastasis early when it can be managed aggressively. Careful surveillance is the best way to catch anything early.
