BACKGROUND : Although many prognostic factors are associated with differences in cancer lethality, it may not be obvious whether a factor truly makes an independent contribution to lethality or simply is correlated with tumor size. There is currently no method for integrating tumor size, lymph node status, and other prognostic information from a patient into a single risk of death estimate. METHODS : The SizeOnly equation, which captures the relation between tumor size and risk of death… CONTINUE READING
