  • SEER Summary Staging – 2018: Summary staging is the most basic way of categorizing how far a cancer has spread from its point of origin. Summary staging has also been called General Staging, California Staging, and SEER Staging. The 2018 version of Summary Stage applies to every anatomic site, including the lymphomas and leukemias. Summary staging uses all information available in the medical record; in other words, it is a combination of the most precise clinical and pathological documentation of the extent of disease. This is the staging system required by the Center for Disease Control’s National Program of Cancer Registries (NPCR) as well as the North american association of Central Cancer Registries (NAACCR). Hospital registries approved by the Commission on Cancer use both the TNM Staging and the SEER Summary Staging. SEER Summary Staging (Melanomas)
  • The cancer reporting form is available to facilities that report five (5) or fewer diagnosed or treated cancer cases per year
