Information about Oral Cancer

 

Oral cancer or mouth cancer, a type of head and neck cancer, is any cancerous tissue growth located in the oral cavity. Oral or oro pharyngeal cancer is the eleventh most common cancer worldwide over 300,000 new cases diagnosed annually. Oropharyngeal and Oral cavity cancer is the most common cancer sites observed in India. These cancer sites are causally related to the use of tobacco in different forms. In India, the use of tobacco is common in the form of chewing and smoking of bidis and cigarettes. More than 2 lakh new cases of head and neck cancers are diagnosed each year. Research studies observed the attributable risk among smokers are 92% and 85% for Lung and Oro pharyngeal cancer, respectively. The attributable risk for those who chewed tobacco is 84.4% for development of Oral cavity cancer. cancer. Delayed reporting resulting in advanced stage disease is a common problem in Indian cancer patients

Treatment options are surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy or a combination of these. Selection of treatment depends on various disease related factors like disease site, stage, anatomical accessibility of the tumor and overall well being of the patient.

 

·Surgery:Current surgical techniques employ primary closure where possible, but can allow for extensive resections by performing immediate reconstructions using free flaps from skin, fascia, muscle or bone.

 

This is often the treatment of choice in more advanced lesions,i.e.T3/T4 Tumors.

 

·Radiation therapy:It can be used as the primary treatment or in the adjuvant postoperative setting. Indications and technique will depend on anatomical location of the tumor. The major potential advantage of this therapy is functional preservation, particularly of speech and swallowing. Acute skin reactions mucosites are more common side effects of radiotherapy.

 

·Chemotherapy:Agents such as 5-flurouracil, cisplatin and methotreaxate can produce high response rates, however responses tend to be short lived, regrowth is often rapid and there is no evidence to show any survival benefit. Chemotherapy in the neoadjuvant setting and concurrent with radiotherapy along with newer agents are the subjects of current clinical trials. Myelosuppression and mucosites are the most common side effects of this therapy.
