In brief: TNM

The staging defines tumors by size, involvement of local structures, nodal status and metastasis.
Size <2 cm=t1, >2cm-t2, beyond pancreas=t3, sma/celiac involvement=t4. T1/2 tumors with no nodes or mets=stage 1, T3 (liothyronine) with no nodes/mets=stage 2a, t1-3 with nodes positive=stage 2b, any t4=stage 3, any mets=stage 4. Stages 1 and 2=resectable, stage 3= borderline, locally advanced (unresectable).
