Cancer spreading: Metastatic is the medical term used to mean cancer is spreading to other organs. One way that cancer spreads is through the lymphatic drainage system (like veins that circulate the fluid in your tissues). A "metastatic node" means that cancer cells were detected in that lymph node, indicating the cancer has spread. This increases the stage of the cancer (making it more advanced).

Spread: Metastasis refers to the spreading of ovarian cancer to areas other than the ovary.

Specializes in Pathology
It depends: Fat on the ovary depends on location and how the fat is identified. If fat is seen by imaging or by the surgeon to be attached to the surface, it most likely will be an adhesion with the omentum or abdominal wall. If fat is seen inside the ovary on imaging, it may indicate a teratoma (dermoid cyst), most often a benign lesion. Pathologic evaluation is necessary to exclude a lesion in the ovary.
