Where does prostate cancer spread to?
Prostate cancer mainly spreads to the lymph nodes. Lymph nodes are groups of immune cells that help filter each organ of infection and even cancer. They are considered the first stop for every cancer before it spreads elsewhere in the body.
Other than that, prostate cancer spreads to bones, especially the spine since it is directly connected to the spine through blood vessels. This is why many patients present for the first time with back pain.
