Cancers We Treat

At Integrative Cancer centers of America (ICCA), our experts treat all stages of metastatic cancer.

What is Metastatic Cancer?

Metastatic cancer is a cancer that has spread from the part of the body where it started (the primary site) to other parts of the body. When cancer cells break away from a tumor, they can travel to other parts of the body through the bloodstream or the lymph system. (Lymph vessels are much like blood vessels, except they carry a clear fluid and immune system cells.)

If the cells travel through the lymph system, they could end up in nearby lymph nodes (small, bean-sized collections of immune cells) or they could spread to other organs. More often, cancer cells that break off from the main tumor travel through the bloodstream. Once in the blood, they can go to any part of the body. Many of these cells die, but some may settle in a new area and start to grow. 

Formation of Cancer Cells

Stages of Cancer

Early Stage

- A small, invasive mass or tumor has been found.
- No spread to lymph nodes or other tissues.
- Sometimes called early-stage or “localized” cancer.

Localized

- Cancer has started to affect nearby tissue.
- Mass may have grown in size.
- Spread to lymph nodes near the mass.

Regional Spread

- Cancer affects more surrounding tissue.
- Mass may have grown in size.
- Spread to distant lymph notes away from the mass.

Distant Spread

- Cancer has spread to other tissues or organs beyond the region where it originated.
- Sometimes called advanced or “metastatic” cancer.
