• HNPCC (a.k.a. Lynch syndrome) and FAP are
syndromes that are linked to colon cancer.
You may be tested for these syndromes.
• You may receive imaging and blood tests to
assess how far the cancer has spread.
• Treatment options for stage IV cancer are
based on whether the tumor has abnormal
changes in the
RAS
genes.
