The stage of a cancer refers to how much it has grown and whether the tumor has spread from its original location. There are five stages of cancer, stage 0 - stage 4. Stage 4 cancer is the most wide-spread or aggressive stage. As part of the diagnosis process, several tests help evaluate the cancer stage. Once you know the stage of your cancer, you and your doctor can use this information to decide on the best treatment option for you.

Getting the right diagnosis

Second Opinions

A second opinion can be a game-changer for patients. While it is rare for a diagnosis to change from malignant to benign, a second opinion may reveal other information. Our team verifies whether your staging is correct, your tumor size is correct and your overall assessment is correct. All of these factors can affect which treatment options you are offered.
