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.
