FALLOPIAN TUBE CANCER STAGING

|


PRIMARY TUMOR (T)

TX: Primary tumor cannot be assessed
T0: No evidence of primary tumor
Tis:Carcinoma in situ (limited to tubal mucosa)
T1: Tumor limited to the fallopian tube(s)
T1A: Tumor limited to one tube, without penetrating the serosal surface; no ascites
T1B: Tumor limited to both tubes, without penetrating the serosal surface; no ascites
T1C: Tumor limited to one or both tubes with extension onto or through the tubal
serosa, or with malignant cells in ascites or peritoneal washings
T2: Tumor involves one or both fallopian tubes with pelvic extension
T2A: Extension and/or metastasis to the uterus and/or ovaries
T2B: Extension to other pelvic structures
T2C: Pelvic extension with malignant cells in ascites or peritoneal washings
T3: Tumor involves one or both fallopian tubes, with peritoneal implants outside the
pelvis
T3A: Microscopic peritoneal metastasis outside the pelvis
T3B: Macroscopic peritoneal metastasis outside the pelvis 2 cm or less in greatest
dimension
T3C: Peritoneal metastasis outside the pelvis and more than 2 cm in diameter
* FIGO no longer includes Stage 0 (Tis)
Note: Liver capsule metastasis is T3/Stage III; liver parenchymal metastasis
M1/Stage IV. Pleural effusion must have positive cytology for M1/Stage IV.

REGIONAL LYMPH NODES (N)
NX: Regional lymph nodes cannot be assessed
N0: No regional lymph node metastasis
N1: Regional lymph node metastasis

DISTANT METASTASIS (M)
M0: No distant metastasis (no pathologic M0; use clinical M to complete stage group)
M1: Distant metastasis (excludes metastasis within the peritoneal cavity)
