Where does lung cancer usually metastasis to?

I have been diagnosed with lung cancer and want to know what to expect.

The liver is often a secondary site. The cancer can metastisize anywhere, however. There are different kinds of cancer, which may determine the likelihood of where it might pop up in the future. One site is not generally more common than another.

The most common places for lung cancer to metastasize is to either the brain or the bones. The brain is the most common location.

The metastases of lung cancer can be difficult to predict. The lungs are a very vascular organ so the cancer can show up anywhere the blood flows. One of the more common sites is for the cancer to metastasize to the brain. Other possibilites are the prostate, colon and kidneys.
