What does metastatic cancer mean?

Metastatic cancer represents any form of cancer that spreads from the main point of development to different structures of the body. Similar to the other types of cancer, mesothelioma can spread through the bloodstream or through the lymph nodes.

Most of the times, doctors try to predict the course of the disease guiding themselves by the structures that cancer spreads to. Because mesothelioma is rarely diagnosed in its early stages, it is common to find metastases at the moment of diagnosis.


We wanted a resource where people who are looking for better help can find it, because one of the issues that I have found is that the diagnosis takes a little bit, some people don’t know if they are diagnosed or not. This is something that it is important enough, that is why I wanted to put the information together.
