Oral cancer is one of the ten most frequent cancers worldwide and in the USA. Its incidence is approximately 2-3% of all malignant neoplasms and has one of the lowest survival rates of about 50% over a 5-year period. Oral cancer most often appears clinically as a precancer lesion which then progresses to cancer. 

This Seminar will cover...
  • Clinical Presentation of oral precancer lesions and its progression to cancer
  • Importance of screening and early detection
  • New non-invasive diagnostic tools
  • Management of precancer lesions
  • Management of oral complications of cancer therapy
