Adenocarcinomas arise from glandular tissue and are the most common type of malignancy. Common sites include lung, breast, prostate, esophagus, stomach, intestines and pancreas. Patterns of spread vary with site of origin, but metastases to lungs, liver, lymph nodes and bone are typical for adenocarcinomas.
