Tumor Base Transection Status


**Note 1**: Record transection of the tumor base from documentation in pathology reports. If the whole depth of tumor cannot be seen on a single specimen, the tumor base is considered to be transected. Multiple specimens (two or more) may be taken from a combinantion of biopsy and resection procedures. **Note 2**: Use code 010: * If tumor depth is noted on multiple specimens (two or more). * If only one specimen is taken and has positive deep margins. * If the pathologist indicates the tumor base is transected. **Note 3**: If a single specimen removes the entire depth of tumor and deep margins are not involved, assign code 020.
