Prostate cancer is the most common noncutaneous cancer among men. Staging of prostate cancer is based on these criteria: the extent of the primary tumor (T category); whether the cancer has spread to nearby lymph nodes (N category); the absence or presence of distant metastasis (M category); the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) level at the time of diagnosis; and the Grade Group (based on the Gleason Score), which relies on prostate biopsy, or in some cases, surgery.
