Metastatic lung cancer. Coloured positron eletron tomography (PET) scans through the chest of a patient with lung cancer (red/yellow) in the lower left lung. The cancer has spread (metastasised) to the colon (white), where the cancerous cells will resemble those from the lung (primary cancer). Treatment of metastasised cancers includes a combination of radiotherapy, chemotherapy and surgery, and depends on the type of primary cancer, as well as the size and location of the metastasised cancer.
