Follow this link to a posting of a SEER SINQ that has been finalized during the months of December 2021 through February 2022. There is only one SEER SINQ posting during this time period, and it reflects the difference in coding in prior years to current reporting and warrants special attention.

  • 20160040 instructs how to code "non-invasive follicular thyroid neoplasm with papillary-like nuclear features" (NIFTP) when the diagnosis comment stated this tumor was historically classified as encapsulated follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma.
