Cancer Cervical Stage 4

Cervical Cancer Stage 4
In stage 4, cancer has spread to the bladder, rectum, or other parts of the body. Stage 4 is divided into stages 4A and 4B, based on where the cancer is found.

  • Stage 4A: Cancer has spread to the bladder or rectal wall and may have spread to lymph nodes in the pelvis.
  • Stage 4B: Cancer has spread beyond the pelvis and pelvic lymph nodes to other places in the body, such as the abdomen, liver, intestinal tract, or lungs.
