The TNM Supplement, 4th Edition, includes new, detailed definitions of anatomical sites, regional lymph nodes, and TNM categories. It answers questions that frequently arise during daily use of the TNM system. Importantly, the TNM Supplement expands on the minimum requirements for pathological classification of individal tumour sites and enumerates the recommended criteria for each. Published in association with the Union for International Cancer Control, it provides oncologists with complementary material related to TNM staging not covered in TNM Classification of Malignant Tumours, 7th Edition.

"This is a unique resource that will be invaluable for those intimately involved with staging. Changes in the TNM system amply justify this new edition."

-- Carol Scott-Conner, MD, PhD (University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics) Doody's Review


It is written for specialists and will probably be of greatest value to tumor registrars. It should also be available, as a reference, for clinicians taking care of patients with complex oncologic situations. The authors are all highly credible authorities; they represent an international viewpoint and the book is published under the aegis of the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC).
