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 adult malignant pleural effusion
Epithelial Ovarian Cancer Common adult
Cervical Cancer Rare adult effusion more common than frank pleural involvement
Hodgkin's Lymphoma Uncommon adultchild Pleural effusions occur much more often than direct invasion and typically are not malignant (thus do not confer a worse prognosis).
