  • Many studies have confirmed that the lymphatic system that is not working properly becomes the main reason of spreading of cancer because cancer cells from a primary tumor can become trapped inside the lymph nodes or lymph vessels or they can even start spreading in opposition to lymph flow because it is congested which ultimately results in secondary tumors.
