StageCoverages
Minor Stage CancerMajor Stage Cancer - A malignant tumour characterized by the uncontrolled growth and spread of malignant cells with invasion and destruction of normal tissues. This diagnosis must be supported by histological evidence of malignancy and confirmed by a pathologist. The term cancer includes leukaemia, lymphoma and sarcoma.
Minor Stage Cancer includes:
- Carcinoma in Situ (CIS) of all organs (except skin and prostate), as de ned below and - Early Stage Cancer, as de ned below
Carcinoma of Situ of all organs (except skin and prostate):
Carcinoma in situ (CIS) means the focal autonomous new growth of carcinomatous cells con ned to the cells in which it originated and has not yet resulted in the invasion and/or destruction of surrounding tissues. 'Invasion' means an infiltration and/or active destruction of normal tissue beyond the basement membrane.
The diagnosis of the Carcinoma in situ must always be supported by a histopathological report.
Furthermore, the diagnosis of Carcinoma in situ must always be positively diagnosed upon the basis of a microscopic examination of the fixed tissue, supported by a biopsy result.
In the case of the cervix uteri, Pap smear alone is not acceptable and should be accompanied with cone biopsy or colposcopy with the cervical biopsy report clearly indicating presence of CIS.
Clinical diagnosis or Cervical Intraepithelial Neoplasia (CIN) classification which reports CIN I, CIN II and CIN III (where there is severe dysplasia without carcinoma in situ) does not meet the required definition and are specifically excluded.
All CIS of the skin and prostate are specifically excluded. However, tumours of the prostate histologically classified as having a Gleason score greater than 6 or having progressed to at least clinical TNM classification T2N0M0 are covered under the Major Stage Cancer Bene t. All CIS of the skin and prostate are specifically excluded.
This coverage is available only on the first occurrence of CIS for a particular organ.
Early Stage Cancer shall mean the presence of one of the following malignant conditions:
(i) Tumour of the thyroid histologically classified as T1N0M0 according to the TNM classification (ii) Prostate tumour should be histologically described as TNM Classification T1a or T1b or T1c are of another equivalent or lesser classification (iii) Chronic lymphocytic leukaemia classified as RAI Stage I or II (iv) Basal cell and squamous skin cancer that has spread to distant organs beyond the skin (v) Hodgkin’s lymphoma Stage I by the Cotswolds classification staging system (vi) All tumors of the urinary bladder histologically classified as T1N0M0
The Diagnosis must be based on histopathological features and confirmed by a Pathologist.
