A member asked:

Is it possible for breast cancer to spread to bones even if it didn't reach the blood system or any lymph nodes?

Possible: Hi ASandler, Typically, cancer spreads through the bloodstream (hematogenous spread) or the lymphatics as you stated. However, direct invasion is also possible.
