Oral Cavity: Malignancies and Precursors

  • Margaret S. Brandwein-Weber


This chapter discusses the range of oral cavity precursor lesions, the many histologic variants of oral squamous carcinoma, the Risk Model, resection margin assessment, and summarizes the new staging criteria (8th AJCC). Kaposi’s sarcoma is also discussed here, as the oral cavity is the most common extra-cutaneous site for this tumor.
