EOD Regional Nodes

This input is used for staging


**Note 1:** Hepatoduodenal nodes are regional for primaries of the lesser curvature of the stomach (C165). They are coded in EOD Mets for all other subsites in this schema. **Note 2:** Metastatic nodules in the fat adjacent to a gastric carcinoma, without evidence of residual lymph node tissue, are classified as regional node metastases, but nodules implanted on peritoneal surfaces are classified as distant metastases (see EOD Mets). **Note 3:** Code 800 if regional lymph nodes are involved, but there is no indication which ones are involved.
