Staging of Cervical cancer

Early scattering is typically

A characteristic of cervical tumors is that they form very early during progression of disease spread to the lymph nodes of the pelvis. This is often already at a tumor diameter of 1 to 2 cm of the case.


Depending on the extent of the disease, different stages can be distinguished:
  • Stage 0: very small tumor that affects only the most superficial layer of mucous
  • Stage I: tumor that is strictly limited to the cervix
  • Stage II: tumor grows beyond the area of the cervix, but not to enter into the vagina and not to the pelvic bone
  • Stage III: The spread of cancer to the pelvic bone and / or to the upper third of the vagina with or without clamping of the ureter lying adjacent to, the latter leads to urinary obstruction, and injury to the kidney
  • Stage IV: Tumor growth in addition to the mucosa of the bladder and / or rectum and / or tumor growth beyond the area of the basin
