The purpose of this study is to assess the patient's preference for nivolumab subcutaneous (SC) or nivolumab + relatlimab fixed-dose combination (FDC) SC and provide patient experience data by route of administration. This study will also generate safety data which will further characterize the safety profile of patients switching the route of administration from intravenous (IV) to SC.
