Your cancer doctor needs certain information about the cancer to advise you on the best treatment for you. This includes the following:
- The stage of the cancer, which describes its size and whether it has spread.
- The grade of the cancer, which gives an idea of how quickly the cancer might grow and spread.
This information comes from the tests you have had.
Your cancer doctor and specialist nurse will talk to you about this. They will explain how it helps you and your doctor decide on your treatment plan.
