What is the FIGO staging system?

■ The 2018 International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) uterine cervical cancer staging system introduces a new primary tumor size cutoff value of 2 cm (ie, stage IB1 vs IB2), used to evaluate patients for fertility-sparing radical trachelectomy and to estimate prognosis.

What is FIGO stage IB?

FIGO stages for uterine adenocarcinomas Stage I: The cancer is found only in the uterus or womb, and it has not spread to other parts of the body. Stage IA: The cancer is found only in the endometrium or less than one-half of the myometrium. Stage IB: The tumor has spread to one-half or more of the myometrium.

Which cancer is staged clinically according to Figo?

For more information see Cancer Staging. The FIGO (International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics) staging system is used most often for cancers of the female reproductive organs, including cervical cancer.

What does FIGO stage 3 mean?

Doctors use the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) staging system for cervical cancer. There are 4 stages, numbered 1 to 4. Stage 3 means the cancer has spread away from the cervix and into surrounding structures in the pelvis (the area between the hip bones).

What does Figo Grade 1 mean?

The grading system currently used for endometrioid adenocarcinomas is the one proposed by International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO). If the tumor contains no more than 5% of solid, non-morular component, it is Grade 1.

How is cervical cancer diagnosed and staged?

If cervical cancer is suspected, your doctor is likely to start with a thorough examination of your cervix. A special magnifying instrument (colposcope) is used to check for abnormal cells. During the colposcopic examination, your doctor is likely to take a sample of cervical cells (biopsy) for laboratory testing.

What is Figo grade2?

International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) Grade 2 endometrial endometrioid adenocarcinoma carries a 88% 5-yr survival rate. They are defined by >5% but <50% solid epithelial component. A small subset may display <5% solid growth, but marked nuclear atypia and are designated Grade 2.

What does Figo 1 mean?

What is the prognosis for Stage 3 cervical cancer?

Approximately 60% of patients with stage III cervical cancer survived 5 years from treatment with radiation therapy alone. More recently, however, the addition of chemotherapy (anti-cancer drugs) has improved long-term outcomes in patients with this disease.

What does FIGO stage IVB mean?

FIGO Stage IVB. A FIGO stagetermthat applies to gynecologic cancers. For cervical cancer, it refers to cancer with distantmetastases, including peritonealinvolvement, involvement of the supraclavicularor mediastinal lymph nodes, and metastases to the lung, bone, or liver; for endometrial cancer, it refers to cancer with distant metastases, including metastases to the inguinal lymph nodes, intraperitonealinvolvement, or metastases to the lung, bone, or liver.

What is the success rate of cervical cancer?

When detected at an early stage, the 5-year survival rate for women with invasive cervical cancer is 92%. About 44% of women with cervical cancer are diagnosed at an early stage. If cervical cancer has spread to surrounding tissues or organs and/or the regional lymph nodes, the 5-year survival rate is 56%.
