Record the depth of invasion of cervical cancer into the cervical wall in millimetres (mm), where available from a pathology report. The depth of cervical wall invasion ranges from 0 to 30 mm.

The depth of tumour invasion is an important prognostic indicator for cervical cancer. All macroscopically visible lesions, even with superficial invasion, are allocated to Stage Ib carcinomas.
