AJCC Cancer Staging Manual: The Gold Standard Reference for Oncologists

Now available from STAT!Ref is the AJCC Cancer Staging Manual. Not to be confused with AJCC Cancer Staging Handbook, this manual is the gold standard to help the cancer patient management team determine the correct stage for patients, allowing for the most appropriate care plan.

The AJCC Cancer Staging Manual is used by physicians and health care professionals throughout the world to facilitate the uniform description and reporting of neoplastic diseases. Proper classification and staging of cancer is essential for the physician to assign proper treatment, evaluate results of management and clinical trials, and to serve as the standard for local, regional and international reporting on cancer incidence and outcome.


Significantly expanded and developed by international disease site expert panels, this resource brings together all the currently available knowledge on staging of cancer at various anatomic sites. In this edition, evidence-based TNM staging is supplemented, as appropriate, by selected molecular markers and newly acquired insights into the molecular underpinnings of cancer. This edition features 12 entirely new staging systems, a wide range of changed or new staging definitions, and a refined emphasis on a personalized-medicine approach.

The AJCC Cancer Staging Manual remains the gold standard reference for oncologists, surgeons, pathologists, radiologists, cancer registrars and medical professionals world-wide to ensure that all those caring for cancer patients are fully versed in the language of cancer staging.
