My father has had metastatic colon cancer for about two years now. He has already had all of the usual treatments (5-FU/fluorouracil, Avastin/bevacizumab, Erbitux/cetuximab, etc.), and today we were told that his latest CT scan wasn't good. They found new spots on his liver, so the doctor said he doesn't feel as though the Erbitux is working any longer. He didn't give him his treatment because he said he didn't feel it would be beneficial and that he would check to see if there were any other options for him. So, does this mean if there are no more options and we just give up?
Despite the advances in treatment of colon cancer and the numerous new drugs that are available, current treatment options do unfortunately have a limit. Eventually, at some point, one can exhaust existing therapies.
However, depending on your father’s overall condition and assuming he wants to pursue further treatment, you should always consider clinical trials that may be available for your father’s type of cancer or phase I trials, which are open to all types of tumors.
