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.
Metastatic cancer has the same name as primary cancer. For example, breast cancer that spreads to the lung is called metastatic breast cancer, not lung cancer. It is treated as stage IV breast cancer, not as lung cancer.
Treatment may include chemotherapy, immunotherapy, targeted therapy, or hormone therapy. Surgery and radiation therapy may also be options for some types of metastatic cancer. Doctors might try one type of treatment and then switch to another when the first treatment no longer works.
The cost of Metastatic Cancer treatment includes:
The overall cost of the procedure also varies based on the patient's condition and preferences. Some of these factors are:
Medical oncologists treat cancer using medication, including chemotherapy, immunotherapy, and targeted therapy.
Radiation oncologists treat cancer using radiation therapy, which is the use of high-energy x-rays or other particles to destroy cancer cells.
Surgical oncologists treat cancer using surgery, including removing the tumor and nearby tissue during an operation. This type of surgeon can also perform certain types of biopsies to help diagnose cancer.
There are also medical terms for oncologists who specialize in caring for specific groups of patients or groups of cancers such as, Geriatric oncologists, Gynecologic oncologists, Hematologist-oncologists, Neuro-oncologists, Pediatric oncologists, Thoracic oncologists, Urologic oncologists, etc.
