This thesis presents a series of illustrations intended to make the TNM (Tumor, Node, Metastasis) staging system more useful for physicians in predicting cancer spread patterns. The illustrations are color coded and clearly organized, and are designed to be compiled into a visual manual to be used as a quick referenc for physicians to use when diagnosing patients. The thesis focuses on the illustrations, diagrams, and TNM staging system for the head and neck.
