|Title:||Lung Cancer, Non-Small Cell, Stage IIA|
Two-panel drawing of stage IIA non-small cell lung cancer. First panel shows cancer (5 cm or less), and cancer in the right main bronchus and lymph nodes; also shown are the trachea, bronchioles, and diaphragm. Second panel shows cancer (more than 5 cm but not more than 7 cm), and cancer in the left main bronchus; also shown are the trachea, lymph nodes, bronchioles, and diaphragm. Insets show cancer that has spread from the lung into the innermost layer of the lung lining; a rib is also shown.
Stage IIA non-small cell lung cancer. Cancer has spread to certain lymph nodes on the same side of the chest as the primary tumor; the cancer is (a) 5 cm or smaller, (b) has spread to the main bronchus, and/or (c) has spread to the innermost layer of the lung lining. OR, cancer has not spread to lymph nodes; the cancer is (d) larger than 5 cm but not larger than 7 cm, (e) has spread to the main bronchus, and/or (f) has spread to the innermost layer of the lung lining. Part of the lung may have collapsed or become inflamed (not shown).
