Cancer-Free energy principle

The free energy principle tries to explain how (biological) systems maintain their order (non-equilibrium steady-state) by restricting themselves to a limited number of states.[1] It says that biological systems minimise a free energy functional of their internal states, which entail beliefs about hidden states in their environment. (source wikipedia).

Is it possible that in cancer, during the process of tumorigenesis and metastases the free energy is maximised leading from order to disorder ?
