Color Atlas of Oral Cancer

by KMK Masthan, N Aravindha Babu, Vidyarani Shyamsundar

The “Color Atlas of Oral Cancer” compiled by Dr Masthan, Dr Vidyarani and Dr Aravindha has attempted to provide comprehensive information to oral health experts and planners on precancer, cancer epidemiology, management and need for screening and prevention in oral cancers. Today, there is a tendency for mouth cancer to go up in men, whereas it is coming down in women. The average increase in men is 1% annually, and decrease in women is 1.5%. This field study has documented a lower tobacco chewing habits in the higher socioeconomic and high educational population. The downward trend in chewing habit in women is directly related to education and income and is reflected in the oral cancer incidence. Tobacco-related oral cancer is invariably low grade squamous cell carcinoma, essentially loco regional with a fairly long evolutionary period of precancerous changes, and easily identifiable at every stage. The dental surgeon is the primary care physician for oral cancer detection and prevention. He has a major role for primary prevention of oral cancer. Every dental surgeon should not only counsel on oral and dental hygiene but about hazards and risk factors for oral cancer—use of tobacco.
