How Do You Use the DecisionDx®-Melanoma Test Results?

DecisionDx®-Melanoma provides you and your healthcare professional with personalized information to help inform decisions about your follow-up management and care plan and sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) surgical procedure. The test identifies the likelihood that your tumor could recur or spread within the next 5 years. For most patients eligible for a SLNB, the test can also provide information to help make decisions about this surgical procedure.

When your results are ready, your provider will receive a personalized report to share with you:

Your tumor will be classified into a risk group:

Class

1A

LOWEST RISK

Class 1A signature is associated with the lowest risk of recurrence within 5 years.


In patients 55 years and older with T1-T2 tumors, a Class 1 A result is associated with low probability of a positive sentinel lymph node.




Class

1B/2A

INCREASED RISK

Class 1B/2A molecular signature is associated with an increased risk of recurrence within 5 years relative to Class 1A





Class

2B

HIGHEST RISK

Class 2B signature is associated with the highest risk of recurrence within 5 years relative to Class 1.


In patients with T1-T2 tumors, a Class 2B result is associated with a higher probability of a positive sentinel lymph node.



Integrated Test Result: Once your DecisionDx-Melanoma Class result is determined, it will be incorporated with your clinical and pathological risk factors (Breslow thickness, ulceration, mitotic rate, and age) to provide a precise, personalized likelihood of sentinel lymph node positivity.

Your care team will incorporate your DecisionDx-Melanoma results with results from other tests and procedures. While traditional staging factors do provide risk information, adding information on tumor biology from the DecisionDx-Melanoma test can help your care team make more informed decisions about your treatment plan.
