Cancer Can Change Tissue That Surrounds It, University of California Study Finds
Tissue surrounding tumors can look normal, but its genetic composition may have changed in ways that help the cancer spread, a study reports. The key difference between the genetic makeup of the tissue after a tumor appears is that it contains more genes that can generate inflammation-promoting proteins. Increased inflammation can help the malignancy spread, according to the study, which included prostate cancer. University of California San Francisco researchers conducted the study, which was the first large-scale molecular-level analysis of tissue surrounding tumors. The research, published in Nature Communications, is titled "Comprehensive analysis of normal adjac
