Welcome to the Melanoma Center Staging Tool, which will help you determine the correct stage of melanoma. After responding to a series of questions, you will receive information on your clinical stage, based on the revised TNM staging system, updated in 2009 by the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC). You will also receive a list of any clinical trials that may be appropriate based on your stage.
Please note that the Staging Tool is not meant to replace a professional diagnosis by a physician. If there is a discrepancy between the results of the Staging Tool and your medical diagnosis, your physician’s diagnosis should of course take precedence. However, if you have questions about your condition after using this tool, you may want to print the Staging Tool results and discuss them with your health care provider.
