Abstract

The most common type of oral malignant neoplasm is reported to be Oral Squamous Cell Carcinoma (OSCC),
accounting for more than 90% of all malignant lesions in the oral cavity. The commonest site of OSCC are
the tongue, oropharynx and the floor of the mouth. OSCC is more common in men as compared to women
as men are often more associated with habits such as smoking and tobacco chewing. It is important to have
proper knowledge of this disease so that early diagnosis can be done and mortality rate can be reduced.
