Melanoma Risk Models

AJCC Individualized Melanoma Patient Outcome Prediction Tools
Prediction tools for predicting the clinical outcome of an individual patient with localized or regional cutaneous melanoma. The prediction tools can be used to predict the 5 and 10-year survival rates from initial diagnosis (with a 95% confidence interval) for an individual patient based on his/her relevant clinical and pathologic information. Melanoma Outcome Calculator web calculators provide medical professionals with tools for more accurately estimating the chance of survival for individual patients with breast cancer, melanoma, and renal cell carcinoma, and the impact that various treatment choices will have on that chance of survival.

Researchers at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center have pioneered the use of computerized devices to help patients and their physicians decide among the major treatment choices for several cancers. Rather than relying on general risk groups of patient populations who share similar characteristics, our Melanoma Prediction Tools provide specific information.
