Abstract:

Colorectal cancer is a commonly diagnosed cancer and a major cause of cancer-related morbidity and mortality worldwide. Surgical resection has become the standard therapy for both primarytumor and resectable metastasis and has improved survival. Several monitoring strategies are used for patients who have received curative intended surgery. However, most clinical practice involves monitoring patients for approximately 5 years after surgery because the majority of cases of recurrence and metastasis occur during this period. Here, we report a rare case of a patient with colon cancer who had pulmonary solitary metastasis 18 years after primary tumor excision.
