I was checking to see anyone's input on this. Not my concern at this time, just checking. Does Rectal cancer ever recur further up the colon? Or, visa versa, does colon cancer ever recur in the rectum or anus? Since rectal cancer is sometimes treated differently and has different mortality rates is it considered metastatic if it appears elsewhere in the colon? Has anyone on here ever had this happen? Also, has anyone on here had colorectal cancer recur in the same area multiple times but not in another organ?
