View in Spanish: Cáncer de endometrio en estadio II

Stage II endometrial cancer ( EN-doh-MEE-tree-ul KAN-ser)
Cancer has spread from the uterus to the cervix, but not beyond the cervix. Stage II is divided into stage IIA and IIB, based on how far the cancer has spread into the cervix. In stage IIA, cancer has spread to the glands where the cervix and uterus meet. In stage IIB, cancer has spread into the connective tissue of the cervix.
