What would you do if the cancer disappears?
Posted in Debates on 22 March 2016

A 54-year-old man was diagnosed with a sigmoid adenocarcinoma in a colonoscopy due to changes in bowel habits. In the CT study, two resectable liver metastases were described. After discussion with the patient in a multidisciplinary meeting, chemotherapy was indicated before an hepatectomy, with the colonic resection to be performed in the last place. After a good recovery after hepatectomy, an oncological reevaluation was carried out. In the CT scan, the sigmoid neoplasm had disappeared, so we completed the study with a colonoscopy to tattoo the tumor, but the cancer could not be found. The patient made full response. What would you do now?
