Answer

Like many cancers, cSCC is classified according to the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC)/International Union against Cancer (UICC) tumor-node-metastasis (TNM) staging system. This anatomy-based staging system is designed to stratify patients into general prognostic cohorts based on the size and extent of disease.
