I need to figure out which cancer the data is corresponding to from barcode, and according to the information here, the second label on the barcode is for the type of cancer. But where can I find the table about how these values are mapped to cancer?

The link that website offers is no longer under support as they don't support TCGA anymore. And GDC does not support barcode, so I don't know if there is somewhere I can find this information.

I only need to know the code for GBM and LGG.

GBM = Glioblastoma multiforme LGG = Brain Lower Grade Glioma

Much of the old TCGA barcode details are fragmented across this section of GDC documentation: https://gdc.cancer.gov/resources-tcga-users/tcga-code-tables
