Metastatic patterns of oral cancer

Tumor often grows early into muscle, tendon, periosteum, and bone. Spreading is dictated by the anatomy, and each anatomical site has its own pattern of lymphatic spreading. Five to six percent of patients have lymphatic spread at the time of diagnosis (2).

Distant metastases rarely occur, but in such cases, the lungs are the most common location.
