Cancer starts when cells grow out of control, cells in nearby part of the body can become cancer and can spread to other areas. Cancer often spread from primary site to the secondary site. And usually cancers are named based on the primary site. If the cancer of the primary site is unknown and the secondary site is diagnosed then it is called cancer of unknown primary.
