BACKGROUND The effects of primary tumor size on nodal involvement and of number of involved nodes on survival have not, to our knowledge, been examined in a national database of Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC). OBJECTIVE We sought to analyze a retrospective cohort of patients with MCC from the largest US national database to assess the relationships between these clinical parameters and survival. METHODS A total of 8044 MCC cases in the National Cancer Data Base were analyzed. RESULTS There… CONTINUE READING
