AJCC Cancer Staging Manual, 8th edition Kindle version available now

from AJCC

The AJCC Cancer Staging Manual, Eighth Edition is the first edition to have an electronic book (eBook) version. It is available for purchase now on Amazon and is the most current version of the manual (September 2018).

Since 1977, the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) has published eight editions of cancer staging manuals using contemporary, evidenced-based literature to build a common language of cancer for the care of cancer patients by clinicians and for the cancer surveillance community. The print version of the eighth edition was first published in October 2016 and went into effect for all cancer cases diagnosed on or after Jan. 1, 2018. The eighth edition presents evidence-based revisions for the staging of cancer for a number of organ sites. The chapters include the rationale and rules for staging; the definitions of tumor, lymph node involvement and metastasis; stage groupings; and histologic grade.

There have been updates since the first printing of the eighth edition, all of which are incorporated in this eBook version available through Amazon’s Kindle. The Kindle version can be used on any device (PC, MAC, iPhone, iPad, Android) with the free Kindle app. The electronic version allows for highlighting, adding notes and bookmarks and creating flashcards. The AJCC has a curated FAQ document to address common questions that can be accessed at cancerstaging.org. All other questions related to the eighth edition can be sent to ajcc@facs.org. more
