Surgical Staging

In general, cancers are divided into categories or stages, with the assignment with a stage based on the risk for recurrence.

Stage I: The cancer is found only in the vaginal wall.

Stage II: The tumor has spread to the tissue next to the vagina.

Stage III: The cancer has spread to the lymph nodes and/or the pelvis.

Stage IVA: In addition to spreading to nearby lymph nodes, the cancer also has spread to the bladder, rectum or pelvis

Stage IVB: The cancer has spread beyond the vagina to areas like the lungs.
