Staging Of Lymphoma

SNIPSTART
SNIPEND
  • The stage of lymphoma is a term used to describe the extent of the disease.
    • Stage I: Single lymph node or non-lymph node region is affected.
    • Stage II: Two or more lymph nodes or non-lymph node regions are affected on the same side of the diaphragm (the muscle under the lungs).
    • Stage III: Lymph node or non-lymph node regions above and below the diaphragm are affected.
    • Stage IV: The cancer has spread outside the lymph nodes to organs such as the liver, bones or lungs. Stage IV can also refer to a tumor in another organ and/or tumors in distant lymph nodes.

    Talk to your physician to find out exactly which stage you have. Determining the stage and exact type of lymphoma (by microscopic examination of tissue from a biopsy) are essential steps toward planning the best treatment to cure your disease.
