Caption: Secondary cancer. Coloured composite computed tomography (CT) and positron emission tomography (PET) scans of a patient with metastatic tumours (red) in the liver, lungs, intestines and ganglion cells of the nervous system. A radioactive tracer, injected into the patietn's bloodstream, has been taken up by the tumours. A metastatic cancer is a secondary cancer that has spread (metastasised) from the site of the original cancer, which in this case was thyroid cancer. Once a cancer has spread the prognosis is poor.
