How is ovarian cancer different from metastatic ovarian cancer?

Related to spread: Metastatic refers to a cancer that has spread from the original site that it originated from to a more distant site in the body. For example, if a woman had ovarian cancer and it spread to the lungs then this would be consider metastatic disease.
