cervical cancer has got FIGO staging system. in this system still now lymph node involvement is not taken as staging information. so detail clinical examination like vaginal wall involvement, parametrial wall involvement, rectal mucosa involvement should be informed. 7.4 cm size definitely indicate a bulky disease. Consult your oncologist, after all the information, he/she can inform you about the staging.
