Stage of cancer: This sounds very serious. Cancer is staged to help understand the treatments and expectations for success with treatment, part of the risk/benefit analysis. Stage 4 is cancer that has spread or progressed significantly outside the organ where it started. Stage 1, 2, 3 and 4 have diminishing expectations for treatment success. Take a friend with you to next appointment. You have choices. Be well.
