Answer

The outcome of patients with advanced-stage cSCC is considerably worse. For patients with lymph node metastases, the 5-year survival rate is even lower, estimated at 25-45%. Tumor-related factors such as location, diameter, depth, and cellular differentiation determine the rate of recurrence, as well as perineural invasion and distant metastasis.
