Metastatic Breast Cancer

’Metastasis’ is a word that describes the spread of cancer from its original site (the primary site, or where the cancer started) to another part of the
body. Metastasis happens when cells break away from the original cancer site and travel to other areas of the body through the bloodstream or the lymph
system. Cancer cells then settle in different tissues or organs, where they grow and form a new tumour (the secondary deposit). When breast cancer is found in parts of the body other than the breast it is called ‘metastatic breast cancer.’
