Blood Cancer : Staging

Staging is the process of determining the extent to which a cancer has developed by spreading. Contemporary practice is to assign a number from I-IV to a blood cancer, with I being an isolated cancer and IV being a cancer which has spread to the limit of what the assessment measures. The stage generally takes into account the size of a tumor, whether it has invaded adjacent organs, how many regions it has spread to, and whether it has appeared in more distant locations .There are different yards sticks to distinguish blood cancer into different stages according to the symptoms of prognosis and rate of metastasis. In this section discussions will be carried out on different stages of various blood cancers.

 

 Making an educated treatment decision begins with the stage, or progression, of the disease. Staging describes the severity of a person’s cancer based on the size and/or extent (reach) of the original (primary) tumor and whether or not cancer has spread in the body. Being sure about the stage is very important because it is a critical factor in deciding the best way for treatment procedures.
