Cancers are notorious for recurrences. They usually start in one organ, where they gradually increase in size and then spread either locally, or through blood or lymphatics. Lymphatics are vessels that carry tissue fluid from a particular part and finally drain it into a major vein. A handheld probe that can identify cancer cells during surgery can be useful to prevent cancer recurrences and increase the cancer-free lifespan of the patient. The study was published in Cancer Research.
