T1 Cervical carcinoma confined to uterus (extension to corpus should be disregarded)
T2 Cervical carcinoma invades beyond uterus but not to pelvic wall or to lower third of vaginaT2aIIATumor without parametrial invasion

T3 Tumor extends to pelvic wall and/or involves lower third of vagina, and/or causes hydronephrosis or nonfunctioning kidney
T3a Tumor involves lower third of vagina, no extension to pelvic wall
T3b Tumor extends to pelvic wall and/or causes hydronephrosis or nonfunctioning kidney
T4 Tumor invades mucosa of bladder or rectum, and/or extends beyond true pelvis (bullous edema is not sufficient to classify a tumor as T4)
