NAACCR XML: Tumor.tumorSizeSummary
This data item records the most accurate measurement of a solid primary tumor, usually measured on the surgical resection specimen.
Tumor size is one indication of the extent of disease. As such, it is used by both clinicians and researchers. Tumor size that is independent of stage is also useful for quality assurance efforts.
