This suggests that these cells escaped the Cancer can theoretically metastasize to almost every organ primary tumor early in the disease and exist in a dormant state of the body and these metastases play a central role in most in distant organs until they develop in some patients as overt cancer-related deaths. Tumor cells mainly travel to distant metastases. Understanding the mechanisms by which cancer sites through the blood.
