Previous studies have shown that race and gender are important correlates of survival among patients with cancer of certain sites.
Since race and gender influence the stage of disease at diagnosis and the choice of therapy it has been argued that survival differentials may not be real but instead, they represent secondary associations with clinical variables.
Therefore, verification of the true prognostic effects of race and gender requires proper controlling for potential confounders, such as stage and treatment.
We have studied the 15-year survival experience of a hospital-based cohort of 4527 patients diagnosed with cancer of the mouth over a 28-year period in Brazil.
