Clinical Stage T2 of Prostate Cancer


Stage T2 is a component of the clinical staging for prostate cancer established by the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC). The T2 stage is divided into 3 smaller stages which are denoted by the use of the letters a, b, and c. In the T2 stage, the prostate cancer is visible on the diagnostic imaging tests and the tumor can be palpated during the digital rectal exam. In the T2a stage, the prostate cancer is confined to ∏ of one lobe or less. In the T2b stage, the prostate cancer has spread to more than ∏ of one lobe but does not involve both lobes. In T2c stage, the prostate cancer is confined to the organ but has spread to both lobes.
