Description

A metastatic colon cancer usually occurs when cancer cells break off from their original site in the colon. Cancer cells then travel through the lymph nodes or the bloodstream and reach other parts of the body where they frequently form new cancerous growths. When metastasis or spread affects the vital organs such as the liver or the lungs, the chances for a complete cure is generally poor.

This is a case-based activity that includes discussion of a 69-year-old woman with positive fecal occult blood test (FOBT), who underwent a colonoscopy showing hepatic flexure adenocarcinoma. The patient then underwent hemicolectomy, staging pT3 N2 cM0.

At the end of this course, learners should be able to:

  • Examine the important clinical and molecular subgroups of advanced colorectal cancer
  • Explain the relevance of extended RAS mutations and BRAF beyond KRAS exon 2 in current practice
  • Determine the impact of side of primary on prognosis and treatment choice
  • Discuss the additional mutations beyond RAS and RAF, i.e. Her 2, MSI/dMMR, and impact on therapy

IMPORTANT NOTE: This course expires on March 21, 2020. Participants must complete all necessary course components by this date.
