Early and Accurate Diagnosis of Melanoma is Critical for Long-Term Survival.1

What is myPath® Melanoma?

Myriad Genetic Laboratories has developed myPath® Melanoma, a clinically validated test to be used as an adjunct to histopathology when the distinction between a benign nevus and a malignant melanoma cannot be made confidently by histopathology alone.

The test measures the expression of 23 genes by qRT-PCR methodology and distinguishes melanoma from nevi with a sensitivity of 90-94% and a specificity of 91-96%. 7,29,30

90% - 94%


91% - 96%


Testing Process

Submission of Lesion For Testing

A dermatopathologist sends a tissue block or unstained slides with a completed myPath Melanoma Test Request Form to Myriad.

myPath Melanoma Testing

(5-7 Days)

myPath Melanoma testing is completed in approximately 5-7 days and provides a score as well as a classification of likely benign, likely malignant, or indeterminate.

Test Score Reported via ResultsNOW™

Test results are reported to the ordering physician via Myriad’s ResultsNOW™ online portal.

Physician's Diagnosis

The physician reviews and interprets the myPath Melanoma results within the context of other clinical and histopathological information to render a final diagnosis.

How the myPath Melanoma Test Works

The myPath Melanoma test measures 23 genes for which expression patterns differ between malignant melanoma and benign nevi. These genes are involved in cell differentiation, cell signaling, and immune response signaling.
