Course Description:
In early 2017 the updated 8th edition of the AJCC Staging Classification will be released. As there have been some changes to staging of genitourinary (GU) cancers, this is a timely and important topic. The session will begin with a brief overview by Dr. Mahul Amin, the Chief Editor of the upcoming AJCC manual, followed by a summary of any changes, guidelines and/or controversies regarding the TNM staging in each of the GU related organs.

Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:

  • Describe the process of cancer TNM staging in GU organs based on recent updates to the AJCC Staging Manual
  • Identify differences in contemporary TNM staging parameters compared to the prior 7th AJCC edition for GU cancer
  • Understand prognostic rational behind changes made to the TNM staging system for GU cancers
