Deciphering the melanoma pathology report | 9 min 1
The melanoma pathology report contains all the information you need to manage your patients appropriately.
In this brief video from our GP Insights series, Pathologist Dr Robert Rawson discusses each feature of the melanoma pathology report and why it is important for your patient.
• Breslow thickness and staging
• Other prognostic features including mitotic rate, TILs, neurotropism and lymphovascular invasion
• Clark levels
• The difference between microsatellites, satellites and in transit metastases
• When to discuss with your patients about sentinel node biopsy.
This video is the second in a series and we recommend that you view Making a melanoma diagnosis: How you can help your pathologist first.
