How Quickly Does Mmt Cancer Spread
Very variable: This varies with cancer type and route of spread among other factors. At the time of diagnosis, small cell lung cancer is more often already spread to other organs. Non-small cell cancer can stay as small lung nodules for a couple of years before picking up speed. Spreading via the blood vessels can be sometimes faster than spread through the lymph nodes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body. Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...Read more
Relatively quickly.: Unfortunately, testicular cancer generally tends to grow rapidly relative to other cancers. It then tends to spread, in a fairly predictable pattern, to the lymph nodes behind the abdominal cavity, then potentially to other organs. This makes prompt diagnosis and treatment very important. If you feel a mass in the testicle, don't delay evaluation and see your physician as soon as possible. ...Read more
Depends on cell type: Most testicular cancers grow fairly fast, and many of them have already spread even when diagosed early and primary tumor is small. Mature teratomas of testis tend to grow slowly and seldom spread. Other end of spectrum is the so called choriocarcinoma which is extremely malignant, & grows & spreads very fast. Both are uncommon. However never delay when a testicular lump is found. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
IT DEPENDS: It depends on the type of cancer and and the part of body is effected by it some cancers spread very fast and others are slow in their spread to other organs and parts of your body so all cancers are not alike and so the sprerad is not the same for different cancers in different organ systems and parts of your body. ...Read more
Unpredictable: Colon cancer spread to local lymph nodes and then on to other organs such as liver, lungs, bones. It can spread through the blood vessels or locally to other organs such as kidneys, prostate, etc. Rate of spread is unpredictable at present and likely depends on growth factors, cancer differentiation, and unknown factors. Of cancers that comeback after surgery, most (80%) do so within 3 years. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: It depends on the type of cancer and stage at the time sof diagnosis. If it is a non-aggressive form, it may take months or sometimes years to recur. If the tumor is very aggressive or advanced at the time of diagnosis, it is much more likely to recur quickly. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can Spread Quickly: Nodular melanomas tend to grow up as a nodule, and down into the skin. With melanomas, the deeper it is into the skin, the more likely it is to spread. So ask your doctor the depth of penetration in millimeters or the clarks level. Prognosis depends on the depth of penetration, and not the type of melanoma. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Depends: Early detection is curable and that's why pap smears are so important. The ability to spread depends on a number of features- is it poorly differentiated? What stage was it iwhen it was found? Has it gone to lymph nodes already? Sorry- wish i could be more helpful. ...Read more
Enters circulation: The biology behind it is complicated and has been studied for decades by cancer researchers. However in a nutshell, the tumor gains access to blood vessels and lymphatics where it can then travel to distant sites such as lymph nodes, liver, lung, brain, and bones most commonly. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Lymph nodes: Lymph nodes are the way colon cancer cells usually escape the colon. It can grow through the colon into the surroundings. Finally it can move from lymph nodes into the blood stream that flows to the liver. When the colon is examined, and if lymph nodes are involved, chemotherapy is recommended. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
It can spread quickl: Primary malignancies of bone like osteosarcoma, ewing sarcoma and chondrosarcoma can metastasize most commonly to the lungs and other bones. However, the speed at which this happens truly depends on the underlying biologic aggresiveness of the individual cancer. It is hard nearly impossible to determine the speed of spread with our current understanding and tools available for evaluation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Through Contact: Transmission is from someone who has signs of active infection via contact wi blood or bodily fluids or through contact wi contaminated objects. Ebola can be spread through body fluids such as sweat, tears, blood, saliva, breast milk, semen, vomit, urine and stool. The virus can gain entry via cuts/ abrasions of skin, nose, mouth, eyes or any open wound. ...Read more
