FIRST PARAGRAPH: Over the past decade, improvements in imaging technologies along with greater access to medical care have resulted in the discovery of neoplasms in a much earlier stage. This has contributed to a reduction in cancer mortality. However, an unintended consequence of early detection has been detection of lesions which present at an earlier pathologic stage of development, requiring modification of diagnostic criteria, as well as determining a more appropriate risk stratification to inform management.
