Site Anatomy and 8th Edition Staging: Prostate

Starting in January 2018, cancer registries will implement the new staging standards as outlined in the AJCC Cancer Staging Manual, 8th Edition. The manual presents evidence-based criteria for the staging of cancer for a number of anatomic disease sites. The changes reflect the significant impact of prognostic variables that clinicians have long recognized as important in determining prognosis and therapy. Dr. Priya Rao reviews the anatomy of the prostate and the regional lymph node.  She defines the primary tumor, the histologic grade and the prognostic stage groups.

Objectives:

  • Describe the anatomy of the prostate and the regional lymph node.
  • Discuss the 8th Edition changes defining the primary tumor, the histologic grade and the prognostic stage groups.
  • Discuss the new 8th Edition rules for registry collection variables for prostate cancer.
