Pathology Report Does Not Include Staging?

Is this common? My report does not mention staging at all, or is it the Uro report that indicates staging? I have not received my Uro's report.

Re: Pathology Report Does Not Include Staging?

Staging is not based on a biopsy path report. It is based on the DRE and any imaging you may have had. If you have a prostatectomy, it will be re-staged based on that path report with a p in front (e.g., pT1c).
