Likely Locations for Metastasis
Tumors that begin in the breast often want to spread to other parts of the body. Metastasizing cancer cells are especially likely to want to take up residence in places like the liver, the lungs, the brain and the bones. Even if the cancer spreads to the lungs, for example, it is still considered breast cancer because that's where it began. Once a breast cancer cell, always a breast cancer cell, regardless of its current location. It's very frightening to think that a tumor in your breast can spread to your brain. There are ways to find and destroy breast cancer cells that are on the move. Talk to your doctor about your particular situation to see what can be done.
