Stages are Roman numerals, TNM staging is Arabic, grades are Arabic. There are no commas used in the TNM staging per the BOS.
Also, I would transcribe February 2005 for the date, for whatever it's wroth.

USUALLY stages are done with Roman numerals, esp regarding cancer staging. However, with Hep C, I have seen formal reports with both arabic and/or Roman numerals....

Subject: sure does...it's Ficat stage IV! sm for explanation :)
Radiographic staging of AVN was first proposed by Ficat and Arlet in the 1960s and later amended in the 1970s. This 4-staged system delineates the natural history of AVN from normal radiographs (stage I) to cystic changes and sclerosis (stage II) to subchondral collapse or femoral head flattening (stage III) to finally joint space narrowing (stage IV). However, this system does not differentiate certain phases in disease progression (eg, subchondral vs femoral head collapse), nor does it quantify the size and extent of the lesion.

Could it be so simple as men's glandular stage 2 cancer.

Glandular tissue is also found in breast tissue and males also do get cancer there, most think about down below when referring to males.
How is male breast cancer staged?
The term "stage" is used to describe the anatomic extent of disease according to standardized rules. The same staging system is used for both male and female breast cancer patients. This standardized language allows clinicians and researchers to accurately describe the extent of disease. The AJCC (American Joint Committee on Cancer) staging system uses three numbers to determine the stage of the disease. T (stands for tumor) describes tumors of increasing size and local tissue destruction. N (stands for nodes) describes whether or not the tumor has metastasized to regional lymph nodes and if so, how extensive those nodal metastases are. M (stands for metastases) describes the presence or absence of systemic metastases. The AJCC staging system for breast cancer allows precise stratification of cases and is too complex to fully describe here (24).In most series, men present with more advanced disease (higher stages) women. It is not known whether this reflects delay in diagnosis, more rapid progression in disease, different breast anatomy resulting in most lesions being subareolar (with easy access to subareolar lymphatic trunks) or other factors.
