Risk factors for oral cancer in Brazil: A case‐control study
Tobacco and alcohol consumption were the strongest risk factors irrespective of the anatomical site and a significant protective effect was observed for consumption of carotene‐rich vegetables and citric fruits, but not for green vegetables in general.
Lymph node density in oral cavity cancer: results of the International Consortium for Outcomes Research
This multi-institutional study validates the reliability and applicability of LND as a predictor of outcomes in oral cavity squamous cell carcinoma and can potentially assist in identifying patients with poor outcomes and therefore for whom more aggressive adjuvant treatment is needed.
