Conditional Survival After Surgical Treatment of Melanoma: An Analysis of the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results Database

Abstract

Survival curves following surgical treatment of cutaneous melanoma are heavily influenced by early deaths. Therefore, survival estimates may be misleading for long-term cancer survivors. We examined whether conditional survival (CS) is more accurate in predicting long-term melanoma survival. We used the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results database… (More)
