After non-little cell lung cancer (NSCLC) has been diagnosed in a patient it is given what is known as a "stage." This portrays both the span of the tumor, and to what degree the tumor has spread inside the form. Once diagnosed, a more faultless anticipation (future) of a patient could be given. There are five fundamental phases of NSCLC (0, 1, 2, 3, 4). Each of these stages is further partitioned into additional particular sub-stages.

- 0 The cancer has not spread past the inward coating of the lungs; otherwise called carcinoma in situ (CIS).

- 1 The cancer is confined inside the lungs yet has not yet spread to the lymph hubs.

- 1b (the tumor is more terrific than 3 cm in distance across).

The tumor might likewise be placed in a zone where it has attacked the covering of the lungs, or the divider of the midsection.

- 2b (the tumor is more terrific that 3 cm and has spread to the lymph hubs. It might additionally be available in the principle bronchus district, has attacked the coating of the lungs, or divider of the midsection.

- 3 The cancer has spread to the close-by tissue of the lungs.

At this stage multi-tumors of any size may have spread far from the fundamental tumor range).

- 3b (tumors of any size that have spread to inaccessible lymph hubs and have attacked different organs, for example, the throat, the heart, or tumors with threatening pleural emission [an unusual of liquid in the space between the tissue that lines within the lungs]).

- 4 The cancer has arrived at its most unsafe stage by having spread to different organs of the figure, including an alternate projection of the lung.

Specialists might regularly portray NSCLC with a framework called TNM. This framework is utilized to further arrange lung cancer inside its sub-stages. Each one letter remains for an alternate degree (stage) of the ailment.

T - (the span of the tumor).

N - (shows which lymph hubs have been attacked).

M - (characterizes if the cancer has metastasized).
