  • *P values are not adjusted for multiple comparisons owing to the exploratory nature of the study.

  • †Lymph node metastasis during follow-up (not at presentation) was the subject of analysis.

  • ‡Neither local recurrence nor death from disease occurred in patients with T1 and T2 disease; p values cannot be computed for these outcomes.
