The sites included under this heading are: tongue, floor of mouth, hard and soft palates, buccal aspect of the cheeks, and upper and lower gums. In the International List (1948) the faucial pillars are now included as part of the oral mesopharynx, and with the tonsil and lips are separately considered elsewhere in this volume. Primary bone tumours are also excluded from this section.
