    Oral cavity cancer (OCC) is the most frequent of head and neck cancers, most being squamous cell carcinomas (SCC). Within the oral cavity, the oral tongue is the most common site of cancer. These cancers are very aggressive, with poor survival. The treatment decision is based upon classifications of tumor (T), lymph node (N), and metastasis (M), although tumors with the same classification may act ...
