Metastatic Lung Cancer - Cancer that originates in the lungs, but then spreads to other areas of the body, such as the lymph nodes, liver, bones, or brain. Treatment options for metastatic lung cancer depend on the site of the distant spread, the number of tumors, and other factors such as the patient's overall health. Chemotherapy and, less commonly, radiation therapy, may be used to treat metastatic lung cancer, or to help relief symptoms. Also known as advanced lung cancer.
