To request access to the Cancer Staging Tool (CanStaging), please download and fill in the Application Form (docx). Send it back using the contact details within the application form and we will send you instructions on accessing and using the tool.

CanStaging was developed in collaboration with the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC). In its current version it implements Version 7 of the UICC staging manual and is for non-profit use only.

The tool calculates TNM, Stage Group and other simplified and/or site-specific cancer staging classifications from the basic features of the patient’s disease (e.g. tumour size or number of lymph nodes involved), entered by the user in a controlled fashion.

The Cancer Staging Tool is currently been redeveloped to include more cancer sites and new staging classification rules.  The updated Cancer Staging Tool should be available for download in Autumn 2020.

CanStaging can be accessed here.
