Improvement in survival of patients with oral cavity squamous cell carcinoma: An international collaborative study
Carcinoma, Squamous Cell
Head and Neck Neoplasms

The current results suggest that the prognosis for patients with OCSCC has improved over time, presumably because of advances in imaging and therapy.
