The present invention relates to a method for monitoring migration, invasion, and metastasis of cancer cells by observing the shape of cancer cells cultured in a three-dimensional environment and measuring the activity, expression, and changes in expression sites of proteins associated with invadopodia formation and metastasis, and the degradation of an extracellular matrix; and to a method for screening a cancer metastasis inhibitor. More specifically, it was verified that the reduction in c-jun phosphorylation induced the increase in snail1 and the decrease in cortactin expression in the cells cultured in a three-dimensional environment and the expression regulation relations between the proteins were identical to those in breast cancer tissues obtained from patients.
