The grossing of radical surgery specimens of the head and neck region is extremely challenging due to the complicated anatomy with the inclusion of various tissues such as mucosa, soft-tissue, bone, skin, etc., in the specimen. Also, essential/core data provided in the histopathology report significantly influence further treatment decisions taken. The eighth edition of the cancer staging manual of the American Joint Committee on Cancer has brought about major changes in reporting of squamous cell carcinoma of the oral cavity. Though pathologists in oncology centers who routinely handle such specimens are aware of these updates and the impact of their report on patient management, this may not be true for other peripheral centers that may be handling these specimens. Lack of awareness can lead to a compromised report which will adversely affect patient management. This article attempts to discuss the salient features to be noted in grossing and reporting of squamous cell carcinoma of the oral cavity and the rationale behind this.
