We know about metasasis thru lymph nodes and lymphatic system, I got that. But when it escapes locally epe, pos margins, lidat, I believe this angiogenesis. I think the tumor actually creates its own blood vessels that hook up to bloodstream for a ride to distant organs. Would like to know if that is accurate. More importantly Can this process take place inside prostate/capsule. If so does this assure eventual metasasis or could the less aggressive cells die off from immune system, or the out of the womb effect. My son is a student of epidemiology at chapel Hill and will ask him, but he might not have gotten to that chapter, he is still in 1st of 4 year doctoral program. Hey, Im bragging, and i dont mean Fort Bragging, dont forgive me on that one ,cause, I will do it agin. thanks in advance.

Angiogenesis is the development of small blood vessels. It can be formation in the normal healing process, benign tumors and so on, but, the same supply is necessary for bad tumors too. A blood supply is needed for oxygen and nutrients which allows spread to surrounding tissues and of course, mets.
 
A lot is being done in this part of cancer research. If all this wonderful research discovers a way to prevent it, cures will become common place for so many types of cancer. Hope that answers you question.

Thanks swimom, Do you know if , in a prostate contained tumor this is an avenue of escape. Not talking about pni here, not that you are either. thanks for reply.

A solid tumor could, yes. BUT....so far so good with your stats! We're going for the half-full mode of thinking. You're headed into the second year with 0 PSA. A positive sign :-)
