What are the stages of fallopian cancer?

Stage 0 fallopian cancer, referred to as carcinoma in situ, which means that the tumor has not spread past the fallopian tubal mucus. Stage I cancer has not spread beyond the fallopian tubes. Stage II cancer may involve one or both fallopian tubes with the spread of cancerous cells into the pelvis. Stage III cancer involves the small bowel, the surface of the liver, or a connective tissue layer. Lymph nodes may also be involved at this point. Stage IV fallopian tube cancer is marked by the cancer spreading to even farther off tissues and organs.
