Melanoma is a tumor of the melanocytes primarily occurring in the skin. The fifth most common cancer in the U.S., it occurs in over 970,000 people annually and is attributable to over 7,900 deaths each year. The five-year survival rate from diagnosis overall is 80% to 99% for patients with early stages of the disease, depending on tumor thickness. However, in patients in whom the disease that has spread to adjacent lymph nodes or tissues, the five-year survival drops to 71%, and for those with distant metastases (five percent of cases are diagnosed at this stage), the five-year survival is 32%, representing an area of ongoing clinical need.
