Latest Breast cancer metastasis Stories
By identifying a key protein that tells certain breast cancer cells when and how to move, researchers at Michigan State University hope to better understand the process by which breast cancer spreads, or metastasizes.
There are many factors that affect tumor invasion, the process where a tumor grows beyond the tissue where it first developed.
Stress can promote breast cancer cell colonization of bone.
Investigators from the Vanderbilt Center for Bone Biology have discovered that stress can promote the colonization of breast cancer cells in bone.
It is not primary tumors that are responsible for the majority of cancer deaths, but rather their metastases.
It has long been known that cancer is a disease of aging, but a molecular link between the two has remained elusive.
Breast cancer cells frequently move from their primary site and invade bone, decreasing a patient's chance of survival.
Cancer researchers have known for well over a century that different tumor types spread only to specific, preferred organs.
