About prognosis:

The 'prognosis' of Oral cancer usually refers to the likely outcome of Oral cancer. The prognosis of Oral cancer may include the duration of Oral cancer, chances of complications of Oral cancer, probable outcomes, prospects for recovery, recovery period for Oral cancer, survival rates, death rates, and other outcome possibilities in the overall prognosis of Oral cancer. Naturally, such forecast issues are by their nature unpredictable.
