AJCC to Release Version 9 Cervix Uteri Cancer Staging System on Amazon Kindle

Version 9 of the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) Cancer Staging Protocol for the Cervix Uteri site will be available for purchase for $9.99 exclusively on Amazon Kindle starting October 25, 2020.

The new Version 9 content, presented in a streamlined, easy-to-use format, incorporates the 2018 Fédération Internationale de Gynécologie et d’Obstétrique (FIGO) staging classification, as well as the World Health Organization (WHO) 2020 Classification of Tumors histology codes. Physicians, registrars, researchers, and other content users will be able to purchase the electronic format of the updated Cervix Uteri content, including tables, explanatory notes and illustrations. Version 9 becomes effective on January 1, 2021 and replaces the 8th Edition Cervix Uteri cancer site content. All other disease sites in the 8th Edition Cancer Staging Manual remain current for 2021.

This marks the start of the all-digital format for Version 9 of the AJCC Cancer Staging System. No printed option is being offered at this time. While only the Cervix Uteri site is currently being issued in Version 9, future Cancer Staging System sites will be announced for release as they become available.
