In brief: It has spread
Stage 4 colon cancer involves spread to distant organs; commonly it spreads to the liver, lungs, bones, abdomen cavity.
Though these patients can have long-term survival for years in most cases it is incurable.

I would just add to the prior answer that the average survival is about 2 and a half years--but note this is an average.
