Breast cancer has to invade the breast to be able to spread. It is the two steps of invasion and spread beyond the breast (metastasis) that result in breast cancer deaths. I believe that the study of these changes will lead to the identification of potential diagnostic, prognostic and predictive markers and also valuable therapeutic targets.
