experience with re-turbs at MSK

10 years 11 months ago #21494 by pemquid
I just did some sleuthing, and believe that the "P" codes are the same as the familiar "T" codes. I think the "T" has always referred to the primary tumor, and possibly there is some shift to using "P" instead of "T" so it's clearer that it's the primary tumor being described. I've found no indication that that there is actually any new coding system. (But maybe somebody with more knowledge will have a more accurate explanation.) I did notice that it seemed to be largely people from MSK using the "P in publications.

I went to that page but there is no mention of any series of "P" codes.

Hi DIB. Go to the top bar on this site that has Home, BLC Information,,News, etc. Click on BLC Information and then staging/grading. That should explain what you want to know.

P0,Pa/Pcis, P1 and P2 mean?
