|Title:||Ovarian Cancer Stage IV|
|Description:||Drawing of stage IV shows parts of the body where ovarian cancer, fallopian tube cancer, and primary peritoneal cancer may spread, including the lung, liver, bone, and lymph nodes in the neck and groin. An inset on the top shows extra fluid around the lung. An inset on the bottom shows a close-up of cancer spreading through the blood and lymph nodes to other parts of the body.
In stage IV, cancer has spread beyond the abdomen to other parts of the body. In stage IVA, cancer cells are found in extra fluid that builds up around the lungs. In stage IVB, cancer has spread to organs and tissues outside the abdomen, including the lymph nodes in the groin.
