In brief: Remove lung lesion

At age 34 attempt at cure should be made.
If liver met small and primary already out, liver met to be resected or microwave ablated. Usually chemo is only of temporary value and if all fails, the FDA protocol for monoclonal antibody Neo102 is available for treatment of metastatic colon cancer having failed chemo. the small node and lung lesion can be removed by laparoscopy/thoracoscopy.
