the spread of cancer cells from the original site (primary) to other parts of the body (secondaries).
Areas of cancer spread - for example, areas in the liver where cancer has spread from another part of the body are called liver metastases.
The spread of disease, especially a malignant tumour, remote from its site of origin.
If cancer cells get into the lymphatic system or bloodstream they may travel to other parts of the body and start growing there. These cancers are called secondary cancers or metastases.
small bits of cancer spreading through blood vessels and lymph system and growing in bones, liver, brain and other parts of the body.
The spread of cancer cells to distant areas of the body by way of the lymph system or blood stream.
Cancer that has spread from its place of origin, called the primary tumor site, to another part of the body is called metastatic cancer.
The spread of cancer from one part of the body to another. A tumor formed by cells that have spread is called a “metastatic tumor” or “metastasis".” The metastatic tumor contains cells that are like those in the original (primary) tumor.
The spread of cancer cells to other parts of the body. Understanding Breast Cancer
are a new foci of disease in a distant part of the body.
The spread of a tumor regionally to lymph nodes by the lymphatic system or to separate organs via the blood stream.
Malignant cells which have spread via lymph or blood vessels from the original site to another site in the body
cancer cells that have spread from a primary site to another location in the body
(also called advanced breast cancer): a variety of uncurable-but-treatable conditions caused by the spread of cancerous breast cells, traveling via the blood or lymph systems to distant parts of the body -- typically, bone, lungs, liver or brain
the spread of cancer from its original site to another place in the body where the disease sets in. Sometimes shortened in conversation to â€œmetsâ€. In prostate cancer the most likely place for metastases to occur is in the bones.
Also known as secondary tumours, they are cancerous growths that started from cancer cells shed by a primary cancer in another part of the body.
Locations where cancer has spread from its primary site, usually via the lymph system, blood, or by invasive spread.
Cancer that has spread from one part of the body to another, such as from the breast to the lymph nodes or bones.
Tumours that have come from a first (primary) tumour in another part of the body; also know as secondary tumours.
spread of disease from original site in the body to other sites.
Distant islands of tumor which spread through the lymph channels and blood vessels and establish new areas of tumor growth far removed from the original tumor site.
Tumours formed by the process of "metastasis".
the spread of tumor cells from one part of the body to another unrelated part of the body by the way of the bloodstream or lymphatics.
Spread of a cancer to different parts of the body from the original (or primary) tumor. The metastases are termed 'secondary' tumors.
Cancer that started from cancer cells from another part of the body. For example, cancer that starts in the breast can spread to the lymph nodes and then be spread throughout the body.
Tumors that originated from cancer cells in another part of the body.
cells that get detached from the main tumor may be taken to other parts of the body by lymphatic vessels or blood vessels (veins). Also, they can be scattered around the peritoneal cavity and form so called peritoneal metastases.
Cancer growths that started from cancer cells shed by a primary cancer arising in another part of the body.
A characteristic of malignant (cancerous) tumors that enables them to spread to lymph nodes and to distant tissues and organs.
The spread of a cancerous tumor to another part of the body.
the spread of malignant cells from the original, or primary, tumor location to other, distant parts of the body.
Secondary cancers that form after cancer cells spread to other parts of the body (see Breast Cancer).
