Course Summary

In the human body, cells receive nutrition and oxygen from lymph, a fluid that is recirculated through the body via an extensive network of vessels. Upon arriving at one of many nodes found within the body, the lymph is filtered to discern healthy cells from those carrying disease or infection. White blood cells then flood infected cells to eradicate illness. However, cancer can either develop in the lymph nodes around the body, or it can travel there via the lymphatic vessel network. Understanding the role that the lymphatic system plays in the development, treatment, and prevention of cancer is vital for medical professionals who want to provide their patients with cutting-edge care. This is the second of a two-part series on Cancer and Lymphatics that discusses normal and disease states.
