In brief: No effect

A small growing lesion can be present in bowel for several years and be asymptomatic.
As a tumor grows and invades blood stream, it does elaborate an inhibitory molecule paralyzing the host immune system, that is mutated mitochondrial DNA. Should the lesion metastasize to liver it can obstruct bile ducts eventually compromising liver function.Colon Ca screening important.
