#Flash: Different Types Of Cancer Metastasize To Specific Pa
Researchers recently revealed that different types of cancer metastasize to specific areas of the brain, showing that tumour location follows a predictable pattern.The researchers used the SRS coordinates from 970 patients with approximately 3,200 brain metastatic tumors arising from skin, lung, breast, kidney or colon cancers. It was seen that lung cancer and melanoma mostly showed metastasis at the frontal and temporal lobes whereas breast, renal and colon cancers had a higher propensity to spread to the cerebellum and brainstem. Results helped to identify the areas of the brain most likely to develop cancer-specific tumors and could be useful in the eventual prevention and treatment of brain tumors.
