CANCER DICTIONARY

Some sites were not available in all the volumes, particularly the earlier ones. For this reason, the cancer site dictionary used in this application is based on the International Classification of Disease, 7th revision (ICD-7), that was used for the three first volumes of the series. In order to facilitate use of the database the ICD-7 site codes were then converted to ICD-10, with which the user is probably more familiar. Some sites are not fully compatible between different versions of the ICD and discrepancies are given below.
