The adrenal gland is the 4th common site of metastasis after lung,liver & bone.The metastatic tumor are aggressive one & as a complication there may be necrosis of the cells which may lead to liquefaction.The resultant leaked fluid may lead to further metastasis of the tumor cells in the abdomen .This all is associated with stage 4 disease which shows a poorer prognosis.
