Abstract: Oral cancer not only accounts for significant mortality, but it is also responsible for extensive disfigurement, loss of function, behavioral changes, and financial and sociologic hardship. The prevalence of oral cancers is high in Asian countries, especially in South and Southeast Asia. Asian distinct cultural practices such as betel-quid chewing, and varying patterns of tobacco use, mostly khaini and alcohol use is important risk factors that predispose to cancer of the oral cavity. Tobacco use by the least educated is in a large measure practiced in ignorance of the health consequences, with a belief in medicinal properties of tobacco e. g., for cleaning teeth, relieving toothache, preventing constipation, and relieving gastric complaints like gas and stomach acidity, and with a desire for a low-cost source of pleasure and satisfaction. Tobacco users, because of their nicotine addiction, prefer spending a disproportionate amount of their often-meager income on tobacco products, often curtailing essential expenditures for food, health care, and education for the family. Very few studies described OSCC of anterior central compartment and its association with the type of oral lesion on clinical presentation, association with khaini user and its management (i. e. surgery followed by reconstruction), and the challenges associated with it.
