Two types of staging

There are 2 types of staging for prostate cancer:

The clinical stage

The clinical stage is your doctor’s best estimate of the extent of your disease, based on the results of the physical exam (including DRE), laboratory tests, prostate biopsy, and any imaging tests you’ve had.

The pathologic stage

The pathologic stage, which is based on the surgery and examination of the removed tissue
