CLINICAL MEASUREMENT - ANNOTATIONS

The Clinical Measurement Ontology (CMO), Measurement Methods Ontology (MMO), and Experimental Condition Ontology (XCO) are currently being developed at the Rat Genome Database. For more information about these vocabularies please see Shimoyama et al. Three ontologies to define phenotype measurement data. Front Genet. 2012;3:87.

Accession:CMO:0001877 term browser browse the term
Definition:A value or quantity determined by count of tumors arising in the lip, nasal cavity, paranasal sinuses, pharynx, larynx, and/or in the oral cavity excluding the tongue from the uncontrolled multiplication of cells of the epithelium, or of cells showing the particular cytological characteristics of squamous cell differentiation, such as the presence of keratin, tonofilament bundles, or desmosomes, structures involved in cell-to-cell adhesion. A tumor is an abnormal growth of tissue resulting from uncontrolled, progressive multiplication of cells and serving no physiological function. The tongue is the movable muscular organ on the floor of the mouth; it is the chief organ of taste, and aids in mastication, swallowing, and speech.
Comment:Note that "tumors of the head and neck" or "cancers of the head and neck" refers to a specific group of neoplasms, not just to any tumor located anywhere in the head or neck of an individual. According to the National Cancer Institute "Cancers of the brain, the eye, the esophagus, and the thyroid gland, as well as those of the scalp, skin, muscles, and bones of the head and neck, are not usually classified as head and neck cancers".
Synonyms:exact_synonym: number of non-tongue squamous cell tumors of the head and neck
 related_synonym: non-tongue SCCHN tumor number
