From the AJCC Cancer Staging Manual prepared by the American Joint Committee on Cancer, the AJCC Cancer Staging Handbook contains the complete text of the Manual conveniently sized to fit in the pocket of a lab coat for complete portability.* Used by physicians and health care professionals world wide, the Seventh Edition of the AJCC Cancer Staging Handbook brings together all the currently available information on staging of cancer at various anatomic sites and incorporates newly acquired knowledge on the etiology and pathology of cancer. As knowledge of cancer biology expands, cancer staging must incorporate these advances.

Organized by disease site into 57 comprehensive chapters, the Seventh Edition features much-anticipated, major revisions to many chapters including breast, colon, prostate, kidney, and others. There are new primary site chapters for extrahepatic bile ducts, distal bile duct, cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma, Merkel cell carcinoma, and the adrenal gland plus a vastly expanded section on ophthalmologic malignancies. 

User-friendly enhancements include: 

• a revised and expanded presentation of the principles and rules of TNM staging

• a concise summary of changes in the TNM classification and "Staging at a Glance" opening each chapter to provide a snapshot of staging and coding details

• numerous new line drawings illustrating key sites throughout the text

• full color text to highlight elements of TNM, stage groupings and prognostic factors 

The Seventh Editions of the AJCC Cancer Staging Handbook and Manual remain the essential references for oncologists, pathologists, surgeons, cancer registrars and medical professionals worldwide to ensure that all those taking care of cancer patients are fully versed in the language of cancer staging.
