Stage IV M1C
I was just going through test results of recent labs. i knew that I was Stage IV, but this is the first time I'm seeing the M1C. Did a little Googling to see what it meant, and i understand the definition and it seems appropriate. I'm doing Opdivo/Yervoy and have been doing well on it. Just wondering if the M1C means anything different about my prognosis or how effective treatment will be for me? I've poked around the internet and am not seeing much, so I thought I'd ask the experts here :)
