Stage - describes the extent and severity of cancer in a patient with a solid tumor. Staging is done once, at the time the tumor is excised from the patient.
TNM – the most common staging system. Three characteristics are noted:
For each diagnosis, combinations of T, N, M values are mapped to Stage Names, such as Stage I, Stage II, Stage III, and Stage IV. T,N,M values, and thus Stage Names, vary in meaning according to diagnosis, and not all solid tumors use the TNM system.
