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.
