In the United States, cancers of the oral cavity and oropharynx represent approximately three percent of all malignancies in men and two percent of all malignancies in women. The American Cancer Society estimates that 28,900 new cases of oral cancer will be diagnosed in 2002, and nearly 7,400 people will die from this disease. Over 90 percent of these tumors are squamous cell carcinomas, which arise from the oral mucosal lining. In spite of the ready accessibility of the oral cavity to direct… Expand

ConditionsOral Cancer
Oral cancer.
TLDR
To improve survival, all patients should be routinely and vigilantly screened for oral mucosal lesions, particularly the increasing incidence in young patients without traditional risk factors of alcohol and tobacco abuse. Expand
Binary System of Grading Epithelial Dysplasia in Oral Leukoplakias
TLDR
Prevention and early diagnosis remain important aspects to reduce incidence of the disease, as well as to enhance the survival rate of patients. Expand
Advances in Early Detection and Diagnostic Adjuncts in Oral Cavity Cancer
Oral and pharyngeal cancers combined rank within the top ten most common malignancies in the world for men, with an estimated global incidence of oral cancer alone at approximately 275,000 [1]. OverExpand
Prevalence and Age Distribution of Oral Squamous Cell Carcinoma - A Retrospective Study
Oral cancer is a malignant neoplasm that arises on the lip or in the oral cavity.1 It is traditionally defined as a squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC), because in the dental area2, 3, it has been foundExpand
Oral cancer: leukoplakia, premalignancy, and squamous cell carcinoma.
TLDR
Oral and pharyngeal cancer is more common than cervical or liver cancer, Hodgkin lymphoma, and brain, stomach, or ovarian cancer, and is the sixth most common cancer worldwide. Expand
Potential Malignant Disorders
TLDR
It has been suggested that a significant number of oral cancer cases are preceded by visible clinical changes in the oral mucosa usually in form of white and red patch, which permits diagnosing and treating them at an early stage if these do turn malignant. Expand
Oral Cancer and Potentially Cancerous Lesions - Early Detection and Diagnosis
TLDR
Human papillomavirus (HPV) is suggested as a possible causative factor in cancers of the base of tongue, tonsils and oropharynx, one of the most common malignancies in the world. Expand
Oral cancer : part II Lieutenant
Squamous cell carcinoma and its histologic variants account for over 90% of all malignancies of the oral cavity. Early squamous cell carcinoma often presents as a white lesion (leukoplakia), redExpand
Rapidly Growing Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Tongue
TLDR
A case of a high-risk patient for oral cancers presented with a rapidly growing tongue lesion over six months that was diagnosed as a squamous cell carcinoma of the tongue on the biopsy is presented. Expand
Oral Cancer and Precancer: A Narrative Review on the Relevance of Early Diagnosis
TLDR
Adjunctive tools have been developed and studied to help clinicians in the diagnostic pathway, such as toluidine blue vital staining and autofluorescence imaging, and other methods, i.e., identification of salivary markers of progression may help in reducing mortality due to oral cancer. Expand

TLDR
The most common site of occurrence was the buccal mucosa, followed by the mandibular alveolar ridge and gingiva, and adequate surgical excision appears to be the treatment of choice. Expand

TLDR
The development of second primary epithelial tumors in aerodigestive tract regions of the head and neck, lung, and esophagus may be due to diffuse mucosal initiation and promotion by exogenous carcinogenic factors such as tobacco and alcohol, an effect termed “field cancerization” or “condemned mucosa syndrome” (1, 9, 13, 19).

Incidence of oral carcinoma in patients with leukoplakia of the oral mucosa
TLDR
There is no evidence the the incidence of oral carcinoma can be diminished by surgical removal of the leukoplakia but this does not mean that the operation should be abandoned, mainly for histologic diagnosis. Expand
Oral cancer development in patients with oral lichen planus.
There has been considerable controversy as to whether oral lichen planus (LP) has a premalignant potential. This study retrospectively examined the records of 241 British patients with histologicallyExpand
Screening for cancer of the aerodigestive tract
TLDR
In the United States, cancer of the oral cavity is the only region of the aerodigestive tract that lends itself to routine screening of the asymptomatic population older than 50 years, and there is evidence that population‐based case‐fatality rates are lower in races reated with earlier stages of oral cancer.

TLDR
The conclusion is that oral verrucous carcinoma is a rare tumor of older people, diagnosed in only 1 to 3 of every 1,000,000 persons each year. Expand
Factors delaying the diagnosis of oral and oropharyngeal carcinomas
TLDR
The authors concluded that the early carcinomas were probably asymptomatic and subsequent manifestations were commonly misinterpreted as benign or innocuous oral/dental problems, which may be primarily responsible for the advanced stages of these tumors at the time of discovery. Expand

TLDR
This study confirms that oral leukoplakia is a precancerous lesion and that certain characteristics indicate greater risks and warrant consideration of more aggressive management. Expand
VERRUCOUS CARCINOMA OF THE ORAL CAVITY
TLDR
The literature regarding verrucous carcinoma of the oral cavity is reviewed, as this unusual variant of squamous cell carcinoma continues to present a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge to the clinician. Expand
