Ovarian Cancer Staging

According to the American Cancer Society, ovarian cancer stages and corresponding 5-year survival rate as follows:

Ovarian Cancer Stage I: 90-95%;

Ovarian Cancer Stage II: 60-70%;

Ovarian Cancer Stage III: 30-40%;

Ovarian Cancer Stage IV: 20%.

Tumor staging is closely related to survival, and early detection and timely treatment are important factors to improve the survival rate of ovarian cancer. Only by identifying the stage of ovarian cancer, oncologists can better develop treatment options. How is the ovarian cancer specifically staged?

TNM system

The T refers to the size and extent of the main tumor. The main tumor is usually called the primary tumor.

T1, T2, T3, T4: refers to the size and/or extent of the main tumor. The higher the number after the T, the larger the tumor or the more it has grown into nearby tissues.

The N refers to the number of nearby lymph nodes that have cancer.

N1, N2, N3: refers to the number and location of lymph nodes that contain cancer. The higher the number after the N, the more lymph nodes that contain cancer.

The M refers to whether the cancer has metastasized. This means that the cancer has spread from the primary tumor to other parts of the body.

Ovarian Cancer staging, details are as follows:
