Q: What does Staging mean?
A: Staging is a way of classifying cancer so that you and your healthcare team understand how far the cancer has progressed. The cancer stage describes the tumour size and tells whether it has spread beyond the place in the kidney where it started to grow. Knowing the stage helps your doctor determine the best approach to treatment.
