Curious thought for the day

I know how bacteria and viruses spread. Basically they make copies of themselves and the copies go infect new cells. But how does cancer spread to new cells? Cause cancer cells are body cells. A lot of it I know is just the cells feeding off the body's own food, growing larger and dividing. But how does the cancer jump and spread to a whole nother body tissue?
