What impairments do these listings cover?

We use these listings to evaluate all malignant neoplasms except certain neoplasms associated with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. We use the criteria in 14.08E to evaluate carcinoma of the cervix, Kaposi's sarcoma, lymphoma, and squamous cell carcinoma of the anus if you also have HIV infection.

What do we consider when we evaluate malignant neoplastic diseases under these listings?

We consider factors such as the:

  1. Origin of the malignancy.
  2. Extent of involvement.
  3. Duration, frequency, and response to antineoplastic therapy. Antineoplastic therapy means surgery, irradiation, chemotherapy, hormones, immunotherapy, or bone marrow or stem cell transplantation. When we refer to surgery as an antineoplastic treatment, we mean surgical excision for treatment, not for diagnostic purposes.
  4. Effects of any post-therapeutic residuals.

How do we apply these listings?

We apply the criteria in a specific listing to a malignancy originating from that specific site.

What evidence do we need?

  1. We need medical evidence that specifies the type, extent, and site of the primary, recurrent, or metastatic lesion. When the primary site cannot be identified, we will use evidence documenting the site(s) of metastasis to evaluate the impairment under 13.27.
  2. For operative procedures, including a biopsy or a needle aspiration, we generally need a copy of both the:
    1. Operative note.
    2. Pathology report.
  3. When we cannot get these documents, we will accept the summary of hospitalization(s) or other medical reports. This evidence should include details of the findings at surgery and, whenever appropriate, the pathological findings.
  4. In some situations we may also need evidence about recurrence, persistence, or progression of the malignancy, the response to therapy, and any significant residuals. (See 13.00G.)
