Solid Tumor Rules. Urinary Sites, September 2021 Update
Solid Tumor Rules (2022)/Histology--Bladder: Can the term configuration be used to code the more specific histology for bladder primaries diagnosed 2022 and later? See Discussion.
In the September 2021 Urinary Sites Solid Tumor Rules update, the term configuration was removed from the “DO NOT CODE histology when described as” list. However, it was not added as a term that can be used to code the more specific histology for urinary tumors.
Can configuration be used to code the more specific histology 8130 (papillary urothelial carcinoma) when the diagnosis is urothelial carcinoma, tumor configuration: papillary?
Beginning with cases diagnosed 1/1/2022, the term "configuration" can be used to code histology for urinary sites only. At the request of the AJCC urinary experts, the instructions were changed to allow configuration to be used to code histology.
