New FIGO Rules to be Included in Next Edition of AJCC Staging System


The International Federation of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (FIGO) has developed new staging rules for ovarian, fallopian tube and primary peritoneal cancers.

These new cancer staging rules will be incorporated into the 8th Edition of the AJCC Cancer Staging System. 

Until the release of the AJCC Cancer Staging System, all nationally collected US cancer statistics data for ovarian, fallopian tube, and primary peritoneal cancers must be based on the current AJCC Cancer Staging Manual (7th Edition).
