In brief: Many organs
The first likely tissue where metastases occurs in invasive ductal cancer is the lymph nodes on the armpit or behind the chest wall.
Other organs may include the bones, lungs, liver, brain, adrenal glands, skin, bone marrow, the lining around the lungs or heart or the abdomen. Other parts of the body are less often sites of spread.
