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)
- lymph nodes
Metastasis to the fallopian tubes is most often from cancers of the ovary or uterus.
