NCRA Session Summary- 2014+ Rules for Tumor Grade


2014+ Rules for Tumor Grade

Jetty Alverson, CTR

  • Refer to FORDS 2015 for coding instructions
  • Tumor grade is NOT the same as stage
  • Do not use Table 13 pages 16-17 in the ICD-O-3 manual because the information is outdated and is only to be used for cases before 2010
  • References are posted on the SEER website
  • IF FIGO grade is provided, code histologic grade as 9
  • Changes to CAP and the 8th edition staging manual will alter grade coding
