In brief: Cancer cell spread

The stage of stomach cancer depends on how far cancer cells have spread or invaded.
This can be stages 0, i, ii, iii, or iv. Stage 0 is very early disease that has not spread. Stage i is minimal or local invasion. Stages ii and iii are more invasive. Stage IV is metastatic or has spread to tissues, lymph nodes, or other organs further from the original tumor.

In brief: Need imaging

A combination of endoscopic ultrasound and abdominal ct can be used to stage the stomach cancer.
