 In this revision, macroscopic findings are judged at the clinical stage, at the time of operation, and also from an overall point of view. To this determination is added a description of the estimated depth (T) of the cancers.

 This revision makes it possible to distinguish the socalled early cancers resembling advanced cancers which were formerly classified as type 5 cancers.

 Based or this revision, a clearer understanding of the macroscopic findings before the operation enables the surgeon to make a better estimation of the extent of the cancer. This becomes a guideline for endoscopic therapy, for limited resection operations, and for more reasonable nodal dissections.
