Liver is a particularly receptive organ to metastases from a variety of locations. Primary tumors from stomach, pancreas, gall bladder, and extra-hepatic bile ducts may spread to liver by direct extension. Malignancies from lung, breast, kidney, colon, soft tissue sarcomas and malignant melanomas frequently metastasize to the liver. The photograph shows metastatic small cell carcinoma from the lung.
