In brief: It depends

On the stage of colon cancer.
Early stage is usually treated with surgery alone or followed by adjuvant chemotherapy if justified based on certain tumor features. Metastatic disease is usually treated with chemotherapy with or without surgery based on clinical presentation and extent of metastasis. An oncologist can help you in determining the next treatment modality.

In brief: Colon cancer

The mainstay for colon cancer is complete surgical resection of the colon with negative margins and the draining lymph node basin.
Treatment from there depends on your pathology. However, if the colon cancer has spread, chemotherapy may be the direction of treatment.
