  • American Joint Committee on Cancer

Abstract

A clinically useful classification scheme for cancer must encompass the attributes of the tumor that define its behavior. The American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) classification is based on the premise that cancers of the same anatomic site and histology share similar patterns of growth and similar outcomes.
