Cancer & metastasis: Cancer is a term used for diseases in which abnormal cells divide without control and are able to invade other tissues. Cancer cells can spread to other parts of the body through the blood and lymph systems. When these cancer cells spread beyond the primary organ- we call this metastasis.
