Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Among 3166 patients with microscopically confirmed squamous cell carcinoma of the lip registered at The Ontario Cancer Treatment and Research Foundation's Regional Clinics in 1938-1955, the five-year crude survival rate was 65%, and the five-year net survival rate 89%. Survival was influenced by age, site and size of primary lesion, local and regional invasion, long delay, and treatment method. The initial treatment appeared to control the primary lesion in 84% of cases and involved lymph nodes in 58%. The net survival rates improved over the survey period. Findings confirm the usefulness of the proposed TNM staging.
