In our recent work to update the American Joint Committee on Cancer's AJCC Cancer Staging Manual, we brought the staging system in line with that of salivary gland malignancies to better describe the range of these tumors. In addition, we have suggested that information be collected on biomarkers and clinical and histologic data points. This revised staging, along with careful histologic analysis and patient follow-up, may provide information that helps develop more targeted management for these lesions.
