Abstract

Cancer metastasis occurs via spreading cancer cells from the primary cancer site to distant organs through the lymphatic system and bloodstream. Lung carcinoma has typical sites of metastasis, such as adrenal glands, bone, brain, liver, and lymph nodes (1). Cancer cell movement from the initial site requires a complicated cellular bioprocess.
