September 8, 2006, Newsletter Issue #32: Likely Locations for Metastasis

Tip of the Week

Metastasizing cancer cells can often be found in areas in the body such as the liver, lungs, brain, and the skeletal system. But someone whose cancer has spread to the liver will still have the primary diagnosis of breast cancer, because that is where the cancer originally began. Another way to think of it: Once a breast cancer cell, always a breast cancer cell. Even though it is possible for a tumor of the breast to send spread and cause a tumor elsewhere, modern medicine has devised ways to seek and destroy breast cancer cells that have the potential to metastasize. If you feel uncomfortable about the subject, ask your doctor any questions you might have about metastases.
