TNM Classification of Malignant Tumours
, 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.

These new prognostic groupings, as well as the traditional anatomical groupings, are presented for oesophageal and prostate carcinomas. This latest update is based on the 7th
