Answer

Several staging systems are used for tumors of the musculoskeletal system. The two most common systems are that of the Musculoskeletal Tumor Society and that of the American Joint Committee on Cancer. Both systems include histologic grade, tumor site, and presence or absence of metastasis. Other factors that may be important in staging are the size and depth of the tumor.
