What stage would it be if the PELVIC lymph nodes are involved in case of ovarian cancer? Will it be stage 2 as it is pelvic organ or will it be stage 3 as it will be retroperitoneal?

  • Where do you see being retroperitoneal as being a stage 3 criteria? That's the kind of thing we expect to see from prior research. Who says that's a criteria?

    What I'm asking you to do is edit your question and add a link to a source stating that retroperitoneal lymph node involvement meets 3a criteria. Better yet would be a a link and a brief quote from the source. Everything one needs to understand your question needs to be in the question itself, not in comments. Comments are subject to deletion at any time.
