I saw that Nova show too, and sort of wish I hadn't watched it. The life a tumor takes on is simply horrific, like an alien. How they 'talk' to one another (meaning when there is a primary tumor and dormant mets and when the primary is removed surgically, the dormant tumors get active)is unbelievable. That part about the cornea was astonishing that blood vessels would travel there to 'feed' the tumor when corneas don't even contain blood vessels in the 1st place. I guess it is enlightening for the future, but for now, the whole thing makes my stomach turn. The real question is how the tumor gets there in the first place. Anyway, I'm just venting out of frustration with cancer altogether today, we all just seem so hopeless and it's Russian roulette whether we, or someone we love, is next.
