Metastasis: Effusion Pleura Lesion
Cancers are sorted by a combination of rarity, overall frequency of metastases, and predilection for this site.
|Small Cell Lung Cancer||Common||malignant pleural effusion|
|Epithelial Ovarian Cancer||Common|
|Cervical Cancer||Rare||effusion more common than frank pleural involvement|
|Hodgkin's Lymphoma||Uncommon||Pleural effusions occur much more often than direct invasion and typically are not malignant (thus do not confer a worse prognosis).|
