Stage III cervical cancer
Stage III cervical cancer means that the cancer has spread to the lower part of the vagina or the walls of the pelvis, but not to nearby lymph nodes or other parts of the body. This stage is separated into two subcategories:
- Stage IIIA: The cancer has spread to the lower third of the vagina, but not to the walls of the pelvis.
- Stage IIIB: The cancer has grown into the walls of the pelvis and/or has blocked both ureters, but has not spread to the lymph nodes or distant sites. Or the cancer has spread to the lymph nodes in the pelvis, but not to distant sites.
