Metastatic Cancer Treatment Cost In India

Cost of Metastatic Cancer Treatment in India: Detailed Overview



Cancer that spreads from where it started to a distant part of the body is called metastatic cancer. For many types of cancer, it is also called stage IV (4) cancer. The process by which cancer cells spread to other parts of the body is called metastasis.
