Both endocrine and exocrine tumours of the pancreas are now staged by a single pancreatic staging system.
Staging of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma is with the TNM system, and as a majority of tumours are not-resectable, this is mostly achieved with imaging (typically CT scan) although laparo...

stage Ia: limited to lining of one fallopian tube (intraluminal)

Primary urethral cancer staging often uses the TNM system and is as follows:
Primary tumour staging (T)
Tx: primary tumour cannot be assessed
T0: no evidence of primary tumour
Tis: carcinoma in situ
Ta: non-invasive papillary, polypoid, or verrucous carcinoma
T1: invasion of s...
