Selected patients with isolated distant metastases amendable to local treatment may benefit from aggressive local therapy. Imaging to rule out other sites of disease should be done prior to considering isolated treatment only. Patients who may benefit include those with isolated nodal, lung, liver, or bone metastases. Treatment options include surgical resection with or without external beam radiation therapy (EBRT)/stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT), local ablative therapies with or without EBRT/SBRT, and EBRT/SBRT with or without chemotherapy.
Systemic adjuvant chemotherapy can be considered following local treatment.
