If cancer is found, it will then be "staged." Staging is a careful and thorough examination and classification of how far the cancer has spread and what body organs are involved. Stages range from Stage 0 (the cancer is found only in the cells covering the cervix) to Stage IVB (the cancer has spread to other areas of the body, such as the lungs). Staging is a very important part of the diagnostic process; treatment options and patient prognosis depend in large part on the stage of the cancer.
