According to the American Cancer Society's Article “How is malignant mesothelioma staged?” updated in December of 2013
- Staging is the process of finding out how far a cancer has spread. Your treatment and prognosis (outlook) depend, to a large extent, on the cancer’s stage.
- Staging is based on the results of physical exams, biopsies, and imaging tests (CT scan, PET scan, etc.), which are described in the section, “How is malignant mesothelioma diagnosed?”
- A staging system is a formal way for doctors and nurses to sum up the extent of a cancer.
- Pleural mesothelioma, the most common type, is the only mesothelioma for which a formal staging system exists.
