TNM Classification of Malignant Tumours, 7th Edition provides the latest, internationally agreed-upon standards to describe and categorize cancer stages and progression. Published in affiliation with the International Union Against Cancer (UICC), this authoritative 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. The major alterations addressed in the 7th Edition concern carcinomas of the oesophagus and the gastroesophageal junction, stomach, lung, appendix, biliary tract, skin, and prostate. In addition, there are several entirely new classifications: gastrointestinal carcinoids (neuroendocrine tumours) gastrointestinal stromal tumour upper aerodigestive mucosal melanoma Merkel cell carcinoma uterine sarcomas intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma adrenal cortical carcinoma. A new approach has also been adopted to separate anatomical stage groupings from prognostic groupings in which other prognostic factors are added to T, N, and M categories. These new prognostic groupings, as well as the traditional anatomical groupings, are presented for oesophageal and prostate carcinomas.

The American Joint Committee on Cancer's Cancer Staging Manual is used by physicians throughout the world to diagnose cancer and determine the extent to which cancer has progressed. All of the TNM staging information included in this Sixth Edition is uniform between the AJCC (American Joint Committee on Cancer) and the UICC (International Union Against Cancer). In addition to the information found in the Handbook, the Manual provides standardized data forms for each anatomic site, which can be utilized as permanent patient records, enabling clinicians and cancer research scientists to maintain consistency in evaluating the efficacy of diagnosis and treatment. The CD-ROM packaged with each Manual contains printable copies of each of the book’s 45 Staging Forms.

M. K. Gospodarowicz, P. Hermanek, and D. E. Henson Attention to innovations in cancer treatment has tended to eclipse the importance of prognostic assessment. However, the recognition that prognostic factors often have a greater impact on outcome than available therapies and the proliferation of biochemical, molecular, and genetic markers have resulted in renewed interest in this field. The outcome in patients with cancer is determined by a combination of numerous factors. Presently, the most widely recognized are the extent of disease, histologic type of tumor, and treatment. It has been known for some time that additional factors also influence outcome. These include histologic grade, lymphatic or vascular invasion, mitotic index, performance status, symptoms, and most recently genetic and biochemical markers. It is the aim of this volume to compile those prognostic factors that have emerged as important determinants of outcome for tumors at various sites. This compilation represents the first phase of a more extensive process to integrate all prognostic factors in cancer to further enhance the prediction of outcome following treatment. Certain issues surround ing the assessment and reporting of prognostic factors are also considered. Importance of Prognostic Factors Prognostic factors in cancer often have an immense influence on outcome, while treatment often has a much weaker effect. For example, the influence of the presence of lymph node involvement on survival of patients with metastatic breast cancer is much greater than the effect of adjuvant treatment with tamoxifen in the same group of patients [5].

Edited by world-renowned practising oncologists and written by key opinion leaders, this book contains authoritative and up-to-date information on cancer detection, diagnosis and treatment alongside topics such as survivorship, special populations and palliative care. Remodelled and revised for the ninth edition to provide practical information to oncology workers, the UICC Manual of Clinical Oncology is structured in two parts. Part 1 covers general principles of cancer diagnosis and management with additional attention to special settings in oncology, including supportive care and survivorship, and Part 2 covers site-specific multidisciplinary cancer management. The edition includes up-to-date summaries of all treatment modalities (medical, surgical and radiation) for all tumour sites. It also contains the latest TNM classifications outlined in the TNM Classification of Malignant Tumours. The ninth edition includes: Practical presentation with bullet points, tables, and flow charts intended to facilitate quick reference for day-to-day clinical practice in busy oncology environments, Representation of multidisciplinary care for site specific management, Evidence-based approaches to management, including specific treatment recommendations and investigations guided by clinical practice guidelines, State of art evidence-based recommendations that take into consideration the lack of availability of certain medications or resources, as well as practice variations, in different and remote regions of the world, and Contemporary topics on cancer treatment, such as cancer informatics, evidence levels, principles of prognostication, survivorship and cancer in pregnancy. Oncologists, oncologists-in-training, nurses working with cancer patients and other health professionals responsible for treating and caring for those with cancers will find the UICC Manual of Clinical Oncology an indispensable and comprehensive resource.

This book includes more clinical aspects and concentrates on cancer and precancer of the oral mucosa rather than attempting to cover all benign and malignant tumours of the oral and oropharyngeal tissue. One main emphasis is the significance of the clinical features of the various lesions discussed. Attention is also drawn to those conditions particular to the oral mucosa that may give rise to appearances which are important in differential diagnoses but can be misleading to those who do not have detailed knowledge of the tissue involved. The TNM-classification for malignant tumours of the lip and oral cavity is also included.
