Authors: Edge SB, Hortobagyi GN, Giuliano AE Abstract INTRODUCTION: Cancer staging has historically been based solely on the anatomic extent of the tumor (T), spread to lymph nodes (N), and presence of distant metastases (M). More recently biologic factors have been added to modify TNM stage groups to provide more accurate prognosis for patients. Areas covered: The American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) updated breast cancer staging in 2016 to include T, N, M, tumor grade and expression of estrogen and progesterone receptors and HER2. Addition of these factors changed the stage group for a large fraction of case...
