Evaluation of different metastasis sites in large intestine adenocarcinoma based on a case

Adenocarcinomas of the colon and rectum account for about 95% of all cholerectal carcinomas. In the Surveillance Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) Program of the National Cancer Institute, it has been reported that 4.1 percent of people may develop colorectal cancer during their lifetime. Metastatic colon adenocarcinoma is an advanced stage malignancy, and this metastasis occurs especially and in the first place, usually to the liver and lungs. However, the peritoneum, brain and distant lymph nodes are also places where adenocarcinoma often metastasizes. In addition, there may also be metastases to unexpected areas. Jaw, bladder, soft tissue, intramuscular and cutaneous metastases have been described. Metastases to the floor of the mouth, maxillary gum and palate can also be observed rarely. As in our case, buccal metastasis is limited to only a few cases in the literature.
