Editorial Reviews

Review

From the reviews of the seventh edition:

“Provide a new organ-specific classification that oncologists and other professionals who manage patients with cancer need in order to accurately classify tumours for staging. … a ‘Bible’ for oncologists, pathologists and surgeons, being also useful for all health officers, including general physicians and students, who want to remain updated in oncology. … this is a book that has to be present in all diagnostic imaging departments, as a major support to produce information adequate to the new oncology algorithms.”­­­ (Vincenzo Cuccurullo and Luigi Mansi, European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging, Vol. 38, 2011)

From the Back Cover

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.

*Cancer Staging Forms may be found at the end of every chapter in the AJCC Cancer Staging Manual.

This book seems to be for those who dont have a digital pdf reader and need a staging pocket companion. Save yourself the money and get the cancer staging manual. It is more detailed and comes with a cd containing this book. Every doctor should buy the cancer staging manual.

I got this to carry to conference. It has all the needed info to stage any cancer. The manual goes into more detail, but this is great for a quick reference when you are on the go.

Book arrived over a week late and only after I complained. Was supposed to come from inside the u.s. via parcel post instead it came via FedEx from India. I'm ok with it coming from another country, just advertise it that way. Book was covered in what looked like soot and some kind of adhesive. Not one of my better experiences purchasing a book.
