Determination of stages or phases in the cancer usually used TNM system (tumor, nodules, metastases), so that the cancer was diagnosed as follows:
- Q: describe the size of primary cancer
- N: describes how many cancer cells in the lymph glands
- M: describes whether the cancer has spread to other areas
Staging as described above, different for each type of cancer.
