Etapas del cáncer de colon

En la primera etapa (etapa 0), el cáncer de colon se limita a la capa interna de tu colon. A medida que el cáncer de colon progresa, puede crecer por todo tu colon y extenderse a estructuras cercanas. La etapa más avanzada (etapa IV) indica que el cáncer se ha esparcido a otras áreas del cuerpo, como el hígado o los pulmones.
