Definition

The size of the tumour extending outside of the primary site of cancer.

This applies to both patients treated with and without surgery. In non-surgical cases, the extent of tumour outside the primary site may be assessed by imaging. For example, by using a CT scan, or ultrasound guided core biopsy.
