In the period 1962-77, 205 patients with malignant melanoma (skin cancer) had a radical operation performed at Odense University Hospital, Denmark. All patients were followed until the end of 1977 by which time 134 were still alive while 71 had died (of out whom 57 had died from cancer and 14 from other causes).
