Clinical features and evolution of oral cancer: A study of 274 cases in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Results Of the patients diagnosed in this period, Demographic, clinical and histological data, such as age, gender, anatomic zone, and histological differentiation degree, were obtained. It is projected that byevery year there will be 15 million new cancer cases and 10 million cancer deaths.

To evaluate disparity between clinical and pathological tumor-node-metastasis staging in oral cavity squamous cell carcinoma patients and its impact on overall survival: Survival variables were buczl using the Kaplan-Meier method and compared by log rank tests.

A total of patients diagnosed with OSCC were registered from to A 20 years retrospective study. Definitive diagnosis of OSCC is obtained by histological analysis. The anatomic zone and histological differentiation degree are two important characteristics in OSCC; the biological behavior, treatment, and prognosis could be predicted based on both features 6 – 8. Correlation between TNM classification, histological grading and anatomical location in oral squamous cell carcinoma.

Reports suggest that the aggressiveness of the neoplasm is inversely related to the differentiation degree; based on this patopogia, our results suggest that a substantial number of patients with MD carcinomas could present a limited or poor life quality and survival, however, additional parameters TNM or stage could be necessary to patologa a better prognosis.

In our population we observed a mean age of This is an open-access article distributed under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution License, which permits unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the original work is properly cited.

Bagan JV, Scully C. Conclusions Late stage diagnosis of bucao cancer negatively affects patient survival. The detection of OSCC may be associated with pain or functional alteration in patklogia affect anatomic zone. Early detection and diagnosis of oral cancer.

Prevalence trends of oral squamous cell carcinoma. Mexico City’s General Hospital experience

The predominant anatomic zone was the tongue, followed by the lips and gums, and the histological differentiation degree showed a predominant frequency of the MD degree Table 1. Whether the diagnosis is made early or is delayed determines whether oral cancer patients have a good or poor quality of life, respectively.

From This Paper Figures, tables, and topics from this paper. Anatomical zones were classified according to the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and related health problems, which covers cancer of the lips C0. Assessment of regional spread Nshowed that Poorest survival outcomes were observed in patients with T3 and T4 tumours who did not undergo treatment Table 3. Campaigns and projects to encourage and promote the early diagnosis of cancer among health professionals are necessary.

Of patients, 74 Alcohol consumption, tobacco smoking, unhealthy diets, sedentary lifestyles, and viral infections are risk factors for cancer development.

Clinical features and evolution of oral cancer: A study of cases in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

This highlights the need for tobacco and alcohol consumption prevention programs and an early diagnosis of oral cancer, which could impact the prevalence and incidence of this neoplasm. N Am Bcal Med Sci. InGlobocan indicated that 1. Prognosis is significantly better in patients with stage I than stage IV tumors 10 These data could be used as parameters patlogia the diagnosis of OSCC as well as for the development and dissemination of preventive programs for the early detection of oral cancer.


A follow-up study of patients. Their mean age was Mouth neoplasms, tongue neoplasms, carcinoma, squamous cell, survival analysis. Their principal anatomic zones are the tongue, floor of the mouth, gums, palate, oral mucosa, and other sites in the mouth. These findings suggest that theory that genetic factors are individuals that contribute to greater susceptibility, differences in clinical behaviour and patient prognosis 56.

Clinicopathological evaluation and survival of patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the tongue

Improved survival was associated with early stage diagnosis, absence of affected lymph nodes at diagnosis, and treatment with surgery alone. Pindborg Community dentistry and oral epidemiology Received Oct 31; Accepted Aug Among patients cabrimi oral tumours, those with SCC of the tongue have the poorest survival rates 78. Observed facto in the service evaluated in this study. One study reported better overall survival in patients undergoing surgery alone than other forms of therapy Currently, cancer is one of the most common causes of morbidity and mortality.

BhatV BhatHarish S. Multivariate analysis of factors associated with survival was performed using the Cox stepwise regression model hierarchicalfrom the highest to the lowest hazard ratio HR.

Clinical features and evolution of oral cancer: Global epidemiology of oral and oropharyngeal cancer. According to our results, the prevalence of OSCC does not show important variations; however, a relationship between age and anatomic zone was observed.

Introduction Cancer is a major cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide, with incidence rates varying widely depending on geographic location, age, sex and race 1. Patients were excluded if they had oral SCC at other sites buucal if their medical records did not report metastasis, recurrence and survival or if they only underwent incisional biopsy.
