Accurate prediction of lymph-node metastasis in cancers is pivotal for the next targeted clinical interventions that allow favorable prognosis for patients. Different molecular profiles (mRNA and non-coding RNAs) have been widely used to establish classifiers for cancer prediction (e.g., tumor origin, cancerous or non-cancerous state, cancer subtype). However, few studies focus on lymphatic metastasis evaluation using these profiles, and the performance of classifiers based on different profiles has also not been compared. Here, differentially expressed mRNAs, miRNAs, and lncRNAs between lymph-node metastatic and non-metastatic groups were identified as molecular signatures to construct classifiers for lymphatic metastasis prediction in different cancers. With this similar feature selection strategy, support vector machine (SVM) classifiers based on different profiles were systematically compared in their prediction performance. For representative cancers (a total of nine types), these classifiers achieved comparative overall accuracies of 81.00% (67.96–92.19%), 81.97% (70.83–95.24%), and 80.78% (69.61–90.00%) on independent mRNA, miRNA, and lncRNA datasets, with a small set of biomarkers (6, 12, and 4 on average). Therefore, our proposed feature selection strategies are economical and efficient to identify biomarkers that aid in developing competitive classifiers for predicting lymph-node metastasis in cancers. A user-friendly webserver was also deployed to help researchers in metastasis risk determination by submitting their expression profiles of different origins.
