Cancer Cells Spread Way Earlier Than Thought

“Cancer Cells Spread Way Earlier Than Thought,” Sharon Begley, STAT.

A highly readable article by journalist Sharon Begley in STAT discusses new research demonstrating that cancer cells are able to spread from a tumor much earlier than once believed. What’s more, these cells are more adept at forming potentially lethal metastases at distant sites (such as the brain and bones). The discovery offers the first molecular explanation of how early spread occurs, hinting at why early detection and treatment often fail to prevent cancer deaths.
