Tumor thickness is a relatively new prognostic factor that has been investigated for lower lip cancer. This study was performed in 27 patients, 13 of whom had histopathologically confirmed cervical metastasis, to investigate whether tumor thickness could be used as a predictor of cervical lymph node metastasis. The mean tumor thickness of those cases with(More)
PURPOSE Perineural and vascular invasion are generally recognized as poor prognostic factors in cancer. The authors report the prognostic significance of perineural and vascular invasion in cancer of the larynx.

Prognostic factors must be evaluated to improve the detection of DM at early stage of the disease. Therefore, we have analyzed our cases of laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma with DM to find out(More)
To determine the prognostic significance of depth of invasion in laryngeal cancer, the depth of invasion of tumor was measured with an ocular micrometer on the laryngectomy specimens of 94 surgically treated patients with T1, T2, and T3 laryngeal cancer and was expressed in millimeters. There was a significant negative correlation between the depth of(More)
