Thank you for using Ehealth forum
I went through your query and i would like to help you.
In majority of patients pancreatic cancer is metastatic at the time of diagnosis.
It most commonly spread to lungs ,liver and regional lympnodes.It can directly involve neighbouring organs like intestine, stomach ,gallbladder etc.
It can also spread to any organ in abdominal cavity including ovaries via peritoneal metastasis.

Hope it answers your query.
Take care
