I am not sure what statistical approach/model I should use for the following example - so I hope you can helt with some inputs.

I have four different possible tumour locations in the head area - number 1, 2, 3 and 4. I want to investigate whether specific expression of different surface-receptors correlates with specific tumor locations. I have ten different types of surface-receptors that can be expressed.

How I can I analyze whether specific surface-receptor expressions (or combinations) correlate with presentation of tumors in specific locations?

Can you help with what model/approach I should use?

  • $\begingroup$ In my opinion, multinomial logistic regression could be one of the choice. But I am not sure about it. I want to know what kind of model could be used too. So +1 wishing someone answer this question. $\endgroup$ – KDG Sep 11 '18 at 15:40
