Melanoma (Skin Cancer)
Melanoma is a skin cancer that starts in the melanocytes, which are a type of skin cell. After a melanoma diagnosis, doctors perform exams and tests to determine the stage of the cancer. Those stages range from zero (carcinoma in situ) to four (cancer has spread to another organ). Stages one through three indicate the extent of the disease, how big the tumor is, and/or how cancer has spread to nearby lymph nodes.
Survival rate measures the percentage of patients with a specific type of cancer who are still alive after a certain period of time.
