Metastatic cancerThe organ or structure in which a cancer arises is called the primary site. If cancer cells get into the bloodstream they can spread to other organs. This is called metastases or commonly stage IV disease. If the cancer has spread to multiple sites, the best treatment would generally be chemotherapy or hormonal therapy. For specific spread sites, particularly bone or brain metastases, radiation may be the optimal treatment.
