Abstract

Dentists, primary care physicians, and otolaryngologists should continue to perform complete oral cavity examinations and should be aware of high-risk populations for oral cavity carcinomas. Oral cavity carcinoma is the sixth most common cancer and is often detected in later stages. By using the modalities of physical examination, brush biopsies, vital staining, and spectral analysis, it is hoped that more cancers will be detected at an early stage, decreasing the morbidity and mortality of oral cavity tumors.
