Choriocarcinoma (staging)

Radswiki et al.

The staging system for choriocarcinoma (usually refers to uterine choriocarcinoma) is the FIGO staging system and is as follows 1:

  • stage I:  disease limited to the uterus
  • stage II: disease out of the uterus but limited to the female genital tract
  • stage III: metastasis in the lung with or without involvement of female genital tract
  • stage IV: all metastasis at other locations

This staging system is much simpler than the system for ovarian cancer staging and endometrial cancer staging.
