Question: Is it true
that the first print of the AJCC 8th Manual has large sections missing and significant
changes will need to be made between now and the implementation date in 2018
that will result in a completely new book?
Answer: No, that
is not true. The AJCC 8th Edition Manuals that were published in October 2016
are accurate. The staging systems will not change. There are, however, some
errata which have come to our attention and are posted on the AJCC
website. The list of errata will continue to be updated routinely.
The AJCC will not provide replacement copies of the 8th
Edition Cancer Staging Manual. None of the errata are significant enough to
necessitate a reprint until the current inventory of manuals is depleted.
Question: Will there
be an electronic version of the AJCC 8th Edition Cancer Staging
Manual, and if so when?
Answer: The 8th
Edition Cancer Staging Manual will be made available as an eBook with an Amazon
Kindle and Apple iBook version. These electronic versions of the book are
scheduled to be available the first quarter of 2017.
