BACKGROUND Tumor budding has been suggested to be a prognostic factor in various human cancers. However, the prognostic value of tumor budding for early-stage (cT1/2N0) tongue squamous cell carcinoma remains inconclusive. This study analyzed the correlation of tumor budding with the clinicopathologic features, and its prognostic significance for cT1/2N0 stage tongue squamous cell carcinoma. METHODS One hundred and ninety-five patients with T1/2 stage tongue squamous cell carcinoma enrolled in… CONTINUE READING
