In brief: Difficult to know
You may have pain in the belly or weight loss.
Usually we know about cancer spread by looking at the lymph nodes removed with surgery. We also look at ct scans before surgery to examine the liver and the lungs. Ct scans and sometimes a blood test for cea can help look for spread after surgery for colon cancer.
