Systemic Cancer: This is cancer of any type that has spread to and/or affects the entire body. Some cancers, such as lymphoma, are systemic by default because they occur in cells that circulate throughout the entire body. In other cases, a cancer is called systemic if it has metastasized to distant locations from the primary tumor or if it has invaded the surrounding tissues via local invasion.
