*Nuclear staining score. **Quick score.

aOnly p53 was determined the significant predictor for malignant tumors during differentiation between borderline and malignant tumors.

bp21, bax, and metallothionein was determined the significant predictors for borderline and malignant tumors combined during differentiation between benign and borderline and malignant tumors combined.
