Metastatic adenopathy is a medical term that a doctor may write on a patient's chart during a CT Report. This is commonly seen on patients who have been diagnosed with cancer. This term typically means that it is suspected that a mass that was examined is a lymph node that the cancer has spread to. Generally, after receiving a CT Report, there is a lot of medical terminology that a patient will not understand. The patient can consult with the doctor to find out exactly what was found, what many of the terms mean, and what to expect next.
