Scope

The dataset has been developed for the reporting of resection and biopsy specimens of mucosal malignancies originating in the nasal cavities and paranasal sinuses. Neuroectodermal neoplasms (including melanoma) and sarcomas are not included. Bone, soft tissue and lymphoma protocols are separately listed. Neck dissections and nodal excisions are dealt with in a separate dataset, and this dataset should be used in conjunction, where applicable. For additional independent tumours, complete a separate dataset for each.
