Chisquared tests were used except where an individual cell had a value less than five in which case a Fisher's exact test was used ^{1 }Data are presented as totals and proportions P1 = pvalue obtained for the difference between the median variable values between the infiltrative and nodular subtypes P2 = pvalue obtained for the difference between the median variable values between the infiltrative and superficial subtypes P3 = pvalue obtained for the difference between the median variable values between the nodular and superficial subtypes
