From the Back Cover TNM Classification of Malignant Tumours, Eighth Edition provides the latest, internationally agreed standards to describe and categorize cancer stages. Published in affiliation with the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC), this authoritative pocket-sized guide contains important updated organ-specific classifications that oncologists and other professionals who manage patients with cancer need to accurately classify tumours for staging, prognosis and treatment. Arranged by anatomical region, this authoritative pocket-sized guide delivers updates in staging in head and neck carcinomas, carcinomas of the thyroid, oesophagus, stomach, anal canal, lung, pleura, skin, ovary, prostate, penis and adrenal cortex, as well as neuroendocrine tumours, and bone and soft tissue sarcomas. There are new classifications for p16 positive oropharyngeal carcinomas, carcinomas of the thymus, neuroendocrine tumours of the pancreas, and sarcomas of the spine and pelvis and soft tissue sarcomas of the head and neck, thoracic and abdominal visceral and retroperitoneum. To facilitate the collection of stage data for cancer surveillance in low and middle income countries, there are new sections on Essential TNM in colon and rectum, breast, cervix and prostate carcinomas and simplified Stage for Paediatric Cancer. Clear and carefully templated chapters covering anatomical subsite, regional lymph nodes, TNM clinical classification, pathological classification, histopathologi
