An easily comprehensible and practicable framework for standardised histopathology reports in surgical cancer. The pathological features of the common carcinomas are detailed and non-carcinomatous malignancies are also summarised. 7th edition TNM and WHO classifications of cancers are incorporated, with comments on any associated pathology, diagnostic clues and prognostic criteria supplemented visually by line diagrams.
Each chapter's introduction gives epidemiological, clinical, investigative and treatment summary details. Other pathology includes updated immunophenotypic expression and molecular techniques. The impact of these ancillary investigations on diagnosis, and as biomarkers of prognosis and prediction of response to treatment is summarised, as is the effect of adjuvant treatments on cancers. Experience based clues are given throughout as aids to tumour typing, grading, staging, and gauging prognosis and response to treatment.
Histopathology Reporting: Guidelines for Surgical Cancer, Third Edition is invaluable for trainee and consultant diagnostic histopathologists all over the world, equipping the reader to produce high quality, clinically appropriate histopathology reports, and to participate in contemporary multidisciplinary team management of patients with surgical cancer.

From the reviews of the third edition:
"Dr Allen's book ... aims to 'equip the consultant and trainee pathologist with a summary of the key clinical, pathological and scientific knowledge relevant to any particular cancer type, with the safeguarding of consistent and high quality histopathology reports'. ... This is an invaluable desk book for all histopathologists, whether they are just starting out in their careers or are well-established specialists." (Abbie Pugh, Bulletin of the Royal College of Pathologists, Vol. 166, April, 2014)
"This book briefly describes the correct reporting of various surgical cancer specimens according to current published standards. The purpose is to equip pathologists to report on surgical cancer specimens in a timely, accurate, and reproducible manner. ... Residents and practitioners of pathology are the intended audience. ... The best aspect of the book is the consistent format it uses throughout, which allows for rapid referencing when a reporting question arises in practice. ... It also has helpful pictures demonstrating the proper staging of a specimen." (James W. Bush, Doody's Book Reviews, January, 2014)
