Somebody please correct me if i’m wrong, but i think the edit is correct. The issue is how to enter information in the pN data item, when clinical information is used to calculate the stage group.

From what i understand, it would be appropriate to calculate the pathologic stage for this site/histology even if no lymph nodes were removed. However, we would be using a cN0 to calculate the stage group. A pN0 would only be used if lymph nodes were removed.

The below is the logic description for the edit TNM Path N, Reg Nodes Ex – Ed 7 (CoC). The edit would pass if the pN data item is a cN0 or blank.

This edit is skipped if any of the following conditions are true:

1. Year of Date of Diagnosis is less than 2016, blank (unknown), or invalid
2. Type of Reporting Source = 6 (Autopsy Only) or 7 (Death Certificate Only)
3. Behavior Code ICD-O-3 = 0 (benign) or 1 (borderline)
3. TNM Path N is blank or 88
4. Regional Nodes Examined = blank

IF Regional Nodes Examined = 00 or 99
Then
TNM Path N must = pX, c0, or blank
