Cancer is a complex disease which results in uncontrolled cell growth in any region or organ of the body. Cancer is segmented into different stages depending upon the spread of tumor cells within the body. Primary stages of cancer involve the uncontrolled growth of cancer cells within a confined region or organ of a body. In further stages, cancer either returns to other organs after being treated in one organ or cancer cells metastasizes or moves from one organ to other. Such conditions are termed as metastatic cancers. For instance, re-occurrence of Breast cancer or metastasis of Breast Cancer to lungs is not called Lung cancer but is known and treated as stage-IV breast cancer.
In 2017, 600920 deaths occurred due to metastatic cancers in US alone. In developing countries, the death rates due to metastatic cancers are even higher due to lack of early stage diagnosis of cancer.
