Stage I. Detection of the tumor happens randomly says while it takes only about 5% of the volume of the affected organ.

Stage II. Here, the tumor volume can be about 5-50% of the total prostate volume, another possible option is spread to both lobes.

Stage III. Germination occurs tumor formation of the capsule of the prostate or its transfer to the tissues surrounding the prostate. These tissues in particular may include the seminal vesicles or tissue.

Stage IV. Tumor invasion occurs to the organs surrounding the primary affected area, it is also possible the emergence of distant metastasis.
Features stages of prostate cancer (note: cancer is in the picture translates as cancer) Thus, the early stages of the disease are characterized by local manifestations, without the possibility of detection of metastasis.

The subsequent progression of the disease occurs with the detection of lymphogenic metastasis of prostate cancer in the retroperitoneal region and pelvis regional lymph nodes along the location of the stroke of the abdominal aorta. Also notes the special characteristic tendency of prostate cancer to the formation of multiple bone lesions of the ribs, hips, pelvis and spine. Metastases can be observed in the lungs, including the pleura and in the liver and soft tissues.
