Can someone define what advanced stage ovarian cancer is? Is that when it has spread a far distance in the body from the original site, such as the brain or lungs? I always thought stage 4 was advanced and stage 1 was low grade and stage 2 and 3 were somewhere in between.

From what I understand, advanced is anything stage 3 or above. The cancer has spread from place of origin and the mets are spread to nearby areas. Stage 4 is when the cancer has spread to distant areas.
