During many intensive cancer surgeries, can cancer likely travel through veins and/arteries to different parts of the body?

During many intensive cancer surgeries, can cancer likely travel through veins and/arteries to different parts of the body?

Yes and No: Yes cancer cells do get into the blood vessels either spontaneously or during surgical manipulations, yet they rarely survive their trip in the circulation and are eliminated by the immune system or fail to establish any colonies under normal conditions. So surgery is generally considered safe from this theoretical point of view. ...Read more

If stomach cancer has invaded the fibroadipose tissue under the pancreas, can it be cured? Presuming that the cancer hasn't spread to distant organs.

If stomach cancer has invaded the fibroadipose tissue under the pancreas, can it be cured? Presuming that the cancer hasn't spread to distant organs.

Potentially curable: Aggressive locally advance stomach (gastric) cancers that erode into nearby organs can potentially be cured with aggressive surgery and chemoradiation therapy. The staging workup with PET-CT scan must be performed along with high-definition scans of abdomen with CT or MRI. The procedure may end up being like a Whipple surgery. The surgical oncologist is the doctor that will make the decision. ...Read more

Does seperate few nodules of tumor away from the cancer means was thru bloodstream?

Does seperate few nodules of tumor away from the cancer means was thru bloodstream?

Not necessarily: We need a little more information to answer this. Are you referring to nodules outside the organ of origin or smaller nodules near the tumor in the organ of origin. In the former situation, this implies spread via the circulation; in the latter situation, these "satellite" nodules grow by direct extension from the tumor. ...Read more

Mixed borderline serous & mucinous tumor of both the ovaries with foci of microinvasion and invasive implants in the omentum / should I take chemother?

It depends on...: It depends on the extent of tumor in the peritoneal areas. Is it only in the pelvic area or does it involve upper abdominal peritoneum as well.
