Stage at diagnosis

Stage at diagnosis is vital in helping us predict overall cancer outcomes for patients.

Staging helps describe where a cancer is located, if or where it has spread, and whether it is affecting the other parts of the body. Knowing the stage at diagnosis can help plan for treatment and highlight when cancers could or should be diagnosed earlier.

Being told ‘you have cancer’ can affect so much more than your health. But we are here to help everyone with cancer live life as fully as they can.
