What is metastatic cancer?

When cancer spreads to different parts of the body, it is called metastatic cancer. For instance, when breast cancer that spreads to lungs is called metastatic breast cancer. It is treated as stage IV breast cancer. Cancer can spread regionally to nearby lymph nodes or to tissues and organs. And it can even spread to different body parts. When this happens it is called metastatic cancer.

Often, a metastasis occurs in the stage IV (four) of many forms of cancer, says cancer.gov. Metastasis is a serious stage as it means that the cancer was strong enough to spread to other parts of the body.

In the meanwhile, some common sign of metastatic cancer include pain and fractures in case the cancer has spread to the bone; shortness of breath in case the cancer has spread to the lungs; dizziness, seizures and headaches in case the cancer has spread to the brain and jaundice and swelling in the belly in case the cancer has spread to the liver.

Well, we wish Sonali for speedy recovery!
