Answer

Answer

A number of staging systems are used for bone tumors. The ESMO guidelines do not provide a specific recommendation for which system should be followed. [2] NCCN follows both the tumor-node-metastasis (TNM) classification of the American Joint Cancer Committee/Union for International Cancer Control (AJCC/UICC) [4] and the Surgical Staging System from the Musculoskeletal Tumor Society (MTS) [5] for staging.
