Skin Cancer, Melanoma Staging (In-Transit Metastases, Satellite Tumors, And Microsatellite Tumors)
|Title:||Skin Cancer, Melanoma Staging (In-Transit Metastases, Satellite Tumors, And Microsatellite Tumors)|
Melanoma staging (in-transit metastases, satellite tumors, and microsatellite tumors); drawing shows in-transit metastases in a lymph vessel more than 2 centimeters away from the primary tumor and satellite tumors within 2 centimeters of the primary tumor. Microsatellite tumors are not shown because they can only be seen with a microscope.
Melanoma staging (in-transit metastases, satellite tumors, and microsatellite tumors). One of the factors that helps determine the stage of melanoma is whether there are (1) in-transit metastases (tumors that have spread to lymph vessels in the skin more than 2 centimeters away from the primary tumor); (2) satellite tumors (tumors that have spread within 2 centimeters of the primary tumor); or (3) microsatellite tumors (tumors that have spread to an area right beside or below the primary tumor but can only be seen with a microscope).
