Extended Classification Table from the ICCC-3 based on ICD-O-31

The table below provides the definition for this International Classification of Childhood Cancer, Third edition (ICCC-3) variable. To see other variable definitions, see the ICCC home page.

Caution: The ICCC recode in the SEER databases through the November 2011 submission incorrectly classifies some benign and borderline tumors into specific groups. Benign and borderline tumors should only be in III (all sub categories) and X(a). Please group all other benign and borderline tumors with non-classifiable. This problem was fixed starting with the November 2012 submission.
