using the lymphatic system, researchers focused upon the lymph nodes and lungs. These particular areas are known as common destinations for typical breast cancer cells. Experiments such as this provide a better understanding of how cancer in fact metastasizes. New developments in cancer research enable scientists to understand how and why cancer spreads from its original source. With understanding how these cells function, we can develop new targets for therapy and block metastasis from occurring.
