Has anyone heard/experienced NSLC spreading to the ovary? My mom was diagnosed with Stage IV, 8cm tumor in lower right lobe with cancer cells found in fluid around lungs. No mets to brain or bones only 4cm mass found on right ovary. ONC did blood draw Friday at her first treatment to determine tumor marker. ONC stated that if marker was the same as the lung, lung has spread to ovary. If the marker is different than the lung than she will be sent to GYN/ONC.
I have only found one story of lung adenocarcinoma spreading to ovary and that was a rare case.
Anyone experienced this?
