INTRODUCTION The influence of season at diagnosis on cancer survival has been an intriguing issue for many years. Most studies have shown a possible correlation in between the seasonality and some cancer type survival. With short expected survival, lung cancer is an arena that still is in need of new prognostic factors and models. We aimed to investigate(More)
Most common sites of breast cancer metastases are liver, bone, and lung. Uterus and ovaries are uncommon sites for metastases from breast cancer [1, 2].
