Follow Up

Revised 07 January 2013

  • Patients who have undergone treatment for superficial disease should have endoscopic surveillance.
  • There is no evidence that routine imaging or laboratory investigations are useful in detecting recurrences or metastases at a stage where interventions are curative. Early detection of asymptomatic metastases does not enhance survival.
  • Investigations should be performed based the clinical presentation of a patient who is suspected of having recurrent or metastatic disease.
