Abstract [en]

Patients with colorectal cancer at risk for developing metastases or in the long run metachronous adenomas or cancers in the bowel should be offered a follow-up programme. In such a programme, consideration has to be taken regarding patients’ co-morbidity, stage of disease and organs to check. For metastatic spread, only those with stage II and III disease, as well as those having been curatively treated for metastases, should be included, and the organs of interest are the liver and lungs. Regarding surveillance for new malignancies in the bowel, all patients irrespective of stage, who are free of disease at 5 years, should be included. The aim of the whole surveillance programme is to find recurrences or a new primary which can be treated radically.
