In brief: Stages I-IV

There are different classification systems for different kinds of cancer, but the most common one is called the tnm system, popularized by the ajcc.
T stands for tumor, n stands for nodes (lymph nodes), and m stands for metastasis (spread to distant organs). Stage i cancer is usually limited to the organ of origin, stage iii often means spread to lymph nodes, and stage IV means distant spread.
