Solution

The correct option is A Metastasis
In the case of a malignant tumor, the cells divide more rapidly as they are inclined to grow faster and are more invasive. At times, a few cells break off from the tumorigenic mass and find their way into the bloodstream. Blood takes this tumour to different parts of the body. They get attached to a new part and grows into a new tumour. This is known as metastasis.
