Abstract

Colorectal cancer is the first cause of cancer diagnosis in Spain. Over half of the patients are diagnosed with or will eventually develop distant metastasis.

Available systemic therapeutic options, and integration and sequencing of chemotherapy with surgical procedures are discussed. Extent of disease, treatment objective, tumor kras mutation status, as well as patient’s functional and comorbid conditions shall be considered to properly design the most adequate therapeutic strategy.
