We have not yet seen it in MO, but I did ask on CA Forum how to stage it and got this answer. :

Technology is advancing to the point that EUS and CT may diagnose in situ cancers of the pancreas and lung for which treatment may be watchful waiting. Thus histologic confirmation is never done. How are these to be staged??

I understand your point, but at this time the physician experts stated that in situ cannot be diagnosed on imaging. Until that opinion changes, Tis may not be assigned.

Will that cause a problem with current TNM edits?
