If fallopian tube cancer spreads

Cancer cells can spread from the fallopian tube to other parts of the body. This spread is called metastasis.

Understanding how a type of cancer usually grows and spreads helps your healthcare team plan your treatment and future care. If fallopian tube cancer spreads, it can spread to the following:

  • peritoneum (the membrane that lines the walls of the abdomen and pelvis, and covers and supports most of the abdominal organs)
  • ovary
  • uterus
  • lymph nodes
  • liver
  • lungs
  • brain
  • bone
  • kidneys

Metastasis to the fallopian tubes is most often from cancers of the ovary or uterus.
