Oral Cancer Care Model-Beyond Screening!

Dr. Souvagya Ranjan Kar | Dr. Priyanka Brahma

Abstract: Oral cavity cancer (OCC) represents nearly 2 % of the global cancer burden, with over 377, 000 new cases and 177, 000 deaths worldwide annually (1). Oral cancer includes cancers of the lip, other parts of the mouth and the oropharynx and combined rank as the 13th most common cancer worldwide. An organized health care system is a primary requirement for any screening program. Fragmented, low - resource settings that lack workforce and technical facilities-and that are all too common in developing countries-are barriers to implementing cancer screening programs. The implementation of this model would establish a comprehensive sustainable system for reducing the burden of oral potential malignant disorders.
