Detection and Diagnosis

Finding cancer early -- while it's small and before it has spread -- often allows for more treatment options. Some early cancers may have signs and symptoms that can be noticed, but that's not always the case.

Stages and Outlook (Prognosis)

After a cancer diagnosis, staging provides important information about the extent of cancer in the body and anticipated response to treatment.
