Colorectal Cancers

Scope

The dataset has been developed for the reporting of surgical resection specimens from patients with primary carcinoma of the colon and rectum, including neuroendocrine carcinomas (NECs) and mixed neuroendocrine-non-neuroendocrine neoplasms (MiNENs). It is not applicable to carcinomas of the small intestine, appendix or anus, nor to neuroendocrine tumours (NETs) or non-epithelial malignancies.

Primary colorectal carcinomas treated by local excision are dealt with in a separate dataset.
