Some new evidence has revealed how cancer infiltrates into the human body.
Cancer cells are dependent on an unusual mechanism in order to survive and spread in the human body. A recent study revealed this process in detail. This discovery could aid humanity in its battle against metastasis and secondary tumors in the future.
New evidence: Secret behind success of breakaway cancer cells uncovered
Especially metastasis or the spread of cancer throughout the body is of chief concern since it is so hard to bring to a halt. It is a big challenge since it is not the original cancer that is deadly but the secondary growths that wreak havoc with the body of the cancer victim.
Such an occurrence is possible when cancer cells break away from their original site and migrate to other regions of the body to sow newer and deadlier growths that are hard to manage.
