2007 MP/H Rules
MP/H Rules/Histology--Bladder: Can information from the CAP checklist that indicates, Tumor configuration: papillary be used to code histology to 8130 [papillary urothelial carcinoma] if the final diagnosis is also stated to be Bladder rumor: urothelial carcinoma and the pathologist stages the case as pTa [noninvasive papillary carcinoma]?
For cases diagnosed 2007 to 2017 ONLY: Code the histology as papillary urothelial carcinoma .NOTE: In the CAP checklist, the statement that the tumor has a papillary configuration is a further description of this tumor. This is supported by the pathologist's stage of pTa [noninvasive papillary carcinoma]. Use the information from the CAP checklist when available. The MP/H Rules will be revised to include the term "configuration" in the specific histology terms for in situ tumors.
The steps used to arrive at this decision are
Step 1: Open the Multiple Primary and Histology Coding Rules manual. Choose one of the three (i.e., flowchart, matrix or text) and go to the Urinary Histo rules. The module you use depends on the behavior and number of tumors identified in the primary site. In this case, the patient has a single bladder tumor per the submitted information.
Step 2: Start at Rule H1 in the Single Tumor module. The rules are intended to be reviewed in consecutive order from Rule H1 to Rule H15. Stop at the first rule that applies to the case you are processing. Stop at Rule H7. Code the histology as 8130/2 (noninvasive papillary urothelial carcinoma) when the urothelial carcinoma is stated to have a papillary configuration.
For cases diagnosed 2018 or later, refer to the Solid Tumor Rules, https://seer.cancer.gov/tools/solidtumor/
