Histological grade affected prognosis (disease-free survivals of 86% for grade I tumours compared with 17% for grade III).
Size of the primary tumour determined the subsequent local recurrence rate (18% for tumours < 5 cm compared with 8% for those 5 cm).
Site of the primary tumour was important (local recurrence rate 33% for proximal site compared with 5% for a distal site).
