Cancer is a major health problem today. Prostate cancer staging is a procedure mostly performed by doctors who wish to depict the location of the tumor and level of proliferation. It also determines the probability of the tumor infecting other body organs and if its curable using normal procedures.

The cancer staging process implicates the physician to partake in various tests that should determine the cancer stage.The staging process takes a while for the patient to undergo the tests. The doctors have the responsibility to examine and evaluate the test results to discover the extent at which the tumor has spread and the affected organs. By studying it, it makes it easier for the doctors to treat it and determine the best form of treatment in this way predict if there are any chances of recovering from it.

There are various stages in the the spreading of this form of cancer. In the first stage the tumor is found in the prostate gland only. It cannot be sensed in the process of any screening tests. A first stage cancer is usually made up of cells that look more like healthy cells and is likely to grow slowly and is unlikely to be detected or felt by means of an examining finger.

The tumor is described as a slightly huge lump that can be felt around the gland on the second stage. Although it is too small to be seen on any screen tests. At this time the tumor has not spread to other parts of the body nevertheless, the cells appear to be strange and seem to be growing steadily.

The subsequent stage, the tumor may begin to propagate to other organs and the tissues surrounding the glad. It risks affecting the seminal vesicles too. By this time, the tumor has already spread extensively to the prostatic capsule while the lump is felt and seen vividly on the glands surface.

The immediate fourth stage is described by any tumor that has already spread to other parts of the body and invaded all the nearby organs, such as the rectum, bladder, bone, lungs, lymph nodes or liver.

Through early detection the tumor could be eliminated through various medical stages. The clinical stage, norms its basis on test results that were done before. The tests such as an MRI scan and bone scans are performed although they are not necessary unless advised in reference to the size of the tumor and its stage.

The pathologic stage is grounded on information given during surgery and laboratory results of the prostate tissue removed. The surgery mostly if not, involves the removal of the entire prostate and some lymph nodes.

Recurrent prostate cancer which is a reoccurred tumor after treatment is common in many cancer situations. It may be reverted to the gland or other organs of the body. If this happens the tumor may need to be reviewed again. This helps in earlier detection which in turns leads to an early treatment for the patient which increases the chances of recovery and elimination of the tumor.
