Guidelines For A Serious Form Of Skin Cancer

In a new study, researchers have developed updated guidelines for classifying a serious form of skin cancer called invasive melanoma. The American Joint Committee on Cancer, an organization that provides information on "cancer staging," or the severity of individual cases of cancer, recently updated its guidelines for melanoma. The researchers found that when pathologists used the new guidelines for cases of early-stage invasive melanoma, they agreed with an expert-defined diagnosis 10% more often. The study was published in the JAMA Network Open.
