Carcinomas of the Oral Cavity


The dataset has been developed for the reporting of resection and biopsy specimens of invasive carcinomas of the oral cavity, including lip and tongue. Mucosal melanoma, lymphomas and sarcomas are not included. In addition, neck dissections and nodal excisions are dealt with in a separate dataset, and this dataset should be used in conjunction, where applicable.
