Adult Hodgkin Lymphoma

Stage I

Cancer is found in one of the following places in the lymph system:

  • One or more lymph nodes in one lymph node group.
  • Waldeyer’s ring.
  • Thymus.
  • Spleen
  • Outside the lymph system in one organ or area.

Stage II

Cancer is found

  • in two or more lymph node groups either above or below the diaphragm (the thin muscle below the lungs that helps breathing and separates the chest from the abdomen); or
  • in one or more lymph node groups either above or below the diaphragm and outside the lymph nodes in a nearby organ or area.

Stage III

Cancer is found

  • in lymph node groups above and below the diaphragm (the thin muscle below the lungs that helps breathing and separates the chest from the abdomen); or
  •  in lymph node groups above and below the diaphragm and outside the lymph nodes in a nearby organ or area; or
  • in lymph node groups above and below the diaphragm, and in the spleen; or
  •  in lymph node groups above and below the diaphragm, outside the lymph nodes in a nearby organ or area, and in the spleen.

Stage IV

The cancer:

  • is found outside the lymph nodes throughout one or more organs, and may be in lymph nodes near those organs; or
  • is found outside the lymph nodes in one organ and has spread to areas far away from that organ; or
  • is found in the lung, liver, bone marrow, or cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). The cancer has not spread to the lung, liver, bone marrow, or CSF from nearby areas.

Adult Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma

Stage I

Cancer is found

  • in one lymphatic area (lymph node group, tonsils and nearby tissue, thymus, or spleen); or
  • in one organ or area outside the lymph nodes.

Stage II

Cancer is found

  • in two or more lymph node groups either above or below the diaphragm (the thin muscle below the lungs that helps breathing and separates the chest from the abdomen); or
  • in one or more lymph node groups either above or below the diaphragm. Cancer is also found outside the lymph nodes in one organ or area on the same side of the diaphragm as the affected lymph nodes.

Stage III

Cancer is found

  • in lymph node groups above and below the diaphragm (the thin muscle below the lungs that helps breathing and separates the chest from the abdomen); or
  • in lymph node groups above and below the diaphragm and outside the lymph nodes in a nearby organ or area; or
  • in lymph node groups above and below the diaphragm, and in the spleen.
  • in lymph node groups above and below the diaphragm, outside the lymph nodes in a nearby organ or area, and in the spleen.

Stage IV

Adult non-Hodgkin lymphoma, the cancer:

  • is found throughout one or more organs that are not part of a lymphatic area (lymph node group, tonsils and nearby tissue, thymus, or spleen), and may be in lymph nodes near those organs; or
  • is found in one organ that is not part of a lymphatic area and has spread to organs or lymph nodes far away from that organ; or
  • is found in the liver, bone marrow, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), or lungs (other than cancer that has spread to the lungs from nearby areas).
