In brief: Different sites
One of the most common sites for ovarian cancer to spread is to the lining of the abdominal cavity (peritoneum) or to the fatty covering over the abdomen (omentum).
Other sites may be the diaphragm or less likely to the lungs.

In brief: Many areas
From the ovary, it goes first to the surrounding areas in the pelvis, then to the lymph nodes and other organs in the abdomen including the fat layer called omentum, over the covering of the bowel, liver and then lungs.
Can cause fluid to build up in the belly.
