stage IV vaginal cancer

(...VA-jih-nul KAN-ser)

Stage IV vaginal cancer is divided into stages IVA and IVB. In stage IVA, cancer has spread from the vagina (birth canal) to the lining of the bladder or rectum and/or beyond the pelvis; cancer may have also spread to lymph nodes in the pelvis or groin. In stage IVB, cancer has spread to distant parts of the body.
