SUPPORT CANADIANS LIVING WITH CANCER
If neuroblastoma spreads
Cancer cells can spread from immature nerve cells (called neuroblasts) to other parts of the body. This spread is called metastasis.
Understanding how a type of cancer usually grows and spreads helps your child’s healthcare team plan treatment and future care. If neuroblastoma spreads, it can spread to the following:
- lymph nodes
- bone, including bones of the eye socket (called the periorbital bones)
- bone marrow
- brain and spinal cord (called the central nervous system, or CNS)
Because of smoke inhalation and exposure to toxic chemicals, I live with the fear of cancer virtually every day.
Help for smokers trying to quit
It’s okay to need help to quit smoking. The Canadian Cancer Society is here to support people who are ready to quit and even those people who aren’t ready.
