How long can you live with untreated cancer?
The answer depends on the type of tumor, stage at which it is present and whether there are metastases. Why wait to see how long you will live? Go get yourself examined properly. If it is early and still left untreated one can live for years or if advanced may only have survival in terms of months. Early diagnosis and treatment is Best!!
If cancer is present in the body, it can spread to other parts of the body and become life-threatening. This process of cancer moving from one area of the body to another is called metastasis. If even a few cells of a malignant tumor break off from the tumour and enter the bloodstream, they can travel to new organs. These new cells now begin to damage new organs.
Can prostate cancer spread?
Prostate cancer is a form of cancer that develops in the prostate, a gland in the male reproductive system. Most prostate cancers are slow growing; however, there are cases of aggressive prostate cancers. The cancer cells may metastasize (spread) from the prostate to other parts of the body, particularly the bones and lymph nodes.
