Tumor Base Transection Status
- Note 1: Record transection of the tumor base from documentation in pathology reports. If the whole depth of tumor cannot be seen on a single specimen, the tumor base is considered to be transected. Multiple specimens (two or more) may be taken from a combinantion of biopsy and resection procedures.
- Note 2: Use code 010:
If tumor depth is noted on multiple specimens (two or more).
If only one specimen is taken and has positive deep margins.
If the pathologist indicates the tumor base is transected.
- Note 3: If a single specimen removes the entire depth of tumor and deep margins are not involved, assign code 020.
