Instead, it groups cancers into localized, regional, and distant stages: Localized: The cancer is confined to one area--for example, the skin, a mucosal surface such as the mouth, or an organ like part of the digestive tract.

Regional: The cancer has grown outside of the place where it started such as the skin, mouth or digestive tract into nearby areas or nearby lymph nodes. Distant: The cancer has spread to distant parts of the body such as the lungs or liver. SEER Stage.
