Here is a clear guide to the complex issue of cancer grading. It systematically covers the grading of cancers in all major organ systems and features concise text and informative illustrations, supplemented by summarizing tables.

This is the second edition of a practice-oriented, well-illustrated manual on the microscopic grading of tumors. After an introduction on the history and basic tenets of tumor grading, subsequent chapters focus on specific organ systems. In each case, the most widely used system for grading common tumors is presented and discussed. Throughout, careful attention is paid to the principles of microscopic tumor grading, ancillary methods to improve grading, and the latest techniques used in evaluating tumors and formulating prognosis. Since the first edition, all chapters have been updated to reflect revisions in the clinical practice of pathology and to explain the role of novel immunohistochemistry and molecular biology techniques. In addition, a new chapter is devoted to the latest trends in cancer grading, and further illustrations have been included. Cancer Grading Manual is a superb resource for both diagnostic surgical pathologists and pathology residents.

From the reviews of the second edition: "This is an update of a manual that provides succinct and expert guidance on how to correctly grade cancers of different organ systems. ... This book is intended for surgical pathologists and their trainees. It also would be of interest to anyone curious about how pathologists grade cancers ... or researchers involved in clinical chemotherapeutic pharmaceutical trials. ... This may look like a small book, but it's packed with useful information. Get it and keep it within reach of your microscope." (Valerie L. Ng, Doody's Book Reviews, September, 2013)
