What is lung metastasis?

Metastasis, or metastatic disease, is the spread of a disease from one organ or part to another non-adjacent organ or part. The lungs are a common site for metastatic disease.

Common symptoms reported by people with lung metastasis

Reports may be affected by other conditions and/or medication side effects. We ask about general symptoms (anxious mood, depressed mood, fatigue, pain, and stress) regardless of condition.
