Not sure what it means

  1. Hi! My friends mom just found out that she has cancer. She was told that it was a "stage 4". Can you tell me what this means because I don't know! It doesn't sound good, but I need some reassurance!

    Thanks!

    Sorry to hear about your friends mom... I thought I would give you a link to help you and maybe your friend get some info on cancer.

    Staging of cancer has to do with the progression of the disease before it is diagnosed. A very good resource for both nurses and non-nurses is http://www.onconurse.com/ .
