MOST – Identifying Choroidal Melanoma – New Patient Brochure

Dr. Finger invented a way to remember the 3 most common characteristics of choroidal Melanoma = Orange Pigment, Subretinal Fluid and Thickness typically > 2.0 mm

The Collaborative Ocular Melanoma Study found that plaque radiation therapy was equal to removing the eye to prevent metastasis from medium-sized choroidal melanoma.

The COMS also found that trained eye cancer specialists correctly diagnosed choroidal melanomas 99.6% of the time (without a biopsy). Dr. Finger was a principal investigator for the COMS for 12 years.

Most eye cancer specialists agree that if they examine a choroidal tumor with gross orange pigment, sub retinal fluid and thickness > 2 mm it is a melanoma.
