Collection and usage attributes

Guide for use:

International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) stage according to 2009 definitions. Data on patients affected by Stage 0 disease is not collected.

Stage I: the carcinoma is strictly confined to the cervix (extension to the corpus would be disregarded).

Stage IA: invasive carcinoma that can be diagnosed only by microscopy, with deepest invasion less than or equal to 5 mm and largest extension less than or equal to 7 mm.

CODE 1   Stage IA1

Measured stromal invasion of less than or equal to 3.0 mm in depth and extension of less than or equal to 7.0 mm.

CODE 2   Stage IA2

Measured stromal invasion of greater than 3.0 mm and less than 5.0 mm with an extension of not more than 7.0 mm.

Stage IB: clinically visible lesions limited to the cervix uteri or preclinical cancers greater than stage IA.

CODE 3   Stage IB1

Clinically visible lesion less than or equal to 4.0 cm in greatest dimension.

CODE 4   Stage IB2

Clinically visible lesion greater than 4.0 cm in greatest dimension.

Stage II: cervical carcinoma invades beyond the uterus, but not to the pelvic wall or to the lower third of the vagina.

Stage IIA: without parametrial invasion.

CODE 5   Stage IIA1

Clinically visible lesion less than or equal to 4.0 cm in greatest dimension.

CODE 6   Stage IIA2

Clinically visible lesion greater than 4.0 cm in greatest dimension.

CODE 7   Stage IIB

With obvious parametrial invasion.

Stage III: the tumour extends to the pelvic wall and/or involves lower third of the vagina and/or causes hydronephrosis or non-functioning kidney.

CODE 8   Stage IIIA

Tumour involves lower third of the vagina, with no extension to the pelvic wall.

CODE 9   Stage IIIB

Extension to the pelvic wall and/or hydronephrosis or non-functioning kidney.

Stage IV: the carcinoma has extended beyond the true pelvis or has involved (biopsy proven) the mucosa of the bladder or rectum. A bullous oedema, as such, does not permit a case to be allotted to Stage IV.

CODE 10   Stage IVA

Spread of the growth to adjacent organs.

CODE 11   Stage IVB

Spread to distant organs.
