Messsage from the CAGS Oncology Committee
The CAGS Oncology Committee would like to introduce you to the new UICC TNM staging system, seventh edition. This latest edition includes new classifications for melanoma of the upper aerodigestive tract, gastro-esophageal carcinomas, gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs), appendiceal carcinoma, neuro-endocrine tumors of the GI tract, merkel cell carcinoma and malignancies out of the adrenal cortex. Major modifications have been made to classifications for tumors of the esophagus, stomach, lung and prostate. The Mx system has been eliminated and replaced with cM0 (clinically, no distant metastases), cM1 (clinically, distant metastases) and cM1 (biopsy proven distant metastases). TNM7 will be an important resource for surgeons, residents and medical students treating the oncology patient.
