Stages

The stage of a cancer tells you how big it is and whether it has spread. This helps your doctor decide which treatment you need. Doctors can use a number system or the TNM system to give your cancer a stage.

The tests you have to diagnose your cancer give some information about the stage. Sometimes your doctor can't be certain about the stage until after surgery.
