TNM DLL update

CDC is releasing a revised TNM DLL in mid-February.  For software systems that use the CDC’s TNM DLL, its implementation needs to be synchronized with the implementation of the NAACCR metafile 16D.  All of the changes in the TNM DLL were made to derived stage group values.  Some internal tables from the DLL are used by NAACCR edits to validate directly-coded stage groups against the associated T, N, and M components.  Unless the DLL and metafile are implemented at the same time, users can receive error messages on valid stage group values, or they can have invalid stage group values pass edits.  Sites affected include lung, breast, primary cutaneous lymphoma, and melanoma of the iris, ciliary body, and choroid.

The updated TNM DLL will be posted to https://www.cdc.gov/cancer/npcr/tools/tnmstaging/
