Stage II cervical cancer
Stage II cervical cancer means that the cancer has grown beyond the cervix and uterus, but has not reached the walls of the pelvis or the lower part of the vagina. In this stage of cervical cancer, the disease has not spread to lymph nodes or distant sites. Stage II has two additional subcategories:
- Stage IIA: The cancer has not spread into the tissues next to the cervix, the parametria, but it may have grown into the upper part of the vagina.
- Stage IIB: The cancer has spread into the tissues next to the cervix, the parametria.
