    Cancer Classification


    Introduction to the primary cancer categories

    Classification of carcinomas

    • Classification criteria based on:
      • Tissue and epithelial cell of origin
      • Tumor localization and dedifferentiation
      • Tumor growth pattern
      • Morphological and secretory characteristics
    • Classification of lung and breast carcinomas

    Classification of sarcomas

    • Soft tissue versus bone sarcomas
    • Anatomical and cellular classification of soft tissue sarcomas
    • Classification of common sarcoma types

    Classification of leukemias

    • Acute versus chronic leukemias
    • Classification schemes 
      • Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) 
      • Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML)
      • Acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL)
      • Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL)

    Classification of lymphomas

    • Hodgkin versus non-Hodgkin lymphoma
    • Subtypes of Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphoma

    Classification of myelomas

    • MGUS
    • Smoldering 
    • Multiple myeloma

    Classification of CNS tumors

    • Gliomas
    • Meningiomas
    • Nerve sheath tumors
    • Pituitary tumors
    • Other
  • Lesson Oncology Primer: Classification introduces and defines these terms

  • ALL = Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia

    AML = Acute Myeloid Leukemia

    CLL =  Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia

    CML = Chronic Myeloid Leukemia
