Abstract

Distant metastases are the main cause of cancer-related death. The onset of the metastatic process can now be assessed in cancer patients by the use of sensitive immunocytochemical and molecular methods which allow the identification of single disseminated carcinoma cells or small tumor cell clusters in regional lymph nodes, peripheral blood, or distant organs.
