Trend analyses of OSCC patients who were less than 40 years old and those who were older than 40 years old were performed. Topics Discussed in This Paper. The clinical diagnosis must be confirmed by biopsy and histological analysis. In the Oncology and Pathology departments of the hospital during toa total of patients were diagnosed with a neoplasm 16 ; during the same period, OSCC cases were diagnosed, which represents approximately 5.

The predominant anatomic zone was the tongue, followed by the lips and gums, and the histological differentiation degree showed a predominant frequency of carbini MD degree Table 1. Correlation between TNM patoloia and malignancy, histological features of oral squamous cell carcinoma.

These patients generally have an extremely poor prognosis, because of the inability to fully control these more extensive lesions 4. The differences in anatomic zone frequency are attributed to differential behaviors buca, risk factors exposure, such as the use of cigarettes, cigars, and pipes or tobacco chewing 415 In addition, the general public should be paologia aware of the prognostic factors for oral SCC of the tongue and of the importance of periodic examinations of the oral cavity.


The complete understanding of the specifics of a disease requires an analysis of its epidemiological distribution, so that the necessary measures for its control or elimination can be implemented. The anatomic zones or sites affected vary based on geographical areas. A total of patients diagnosed with OSCC were registered from to National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. Similar to our study, those studies were conducted in sufficiently large patient populations.

In Mexico, there are few reports describing the national trends of OSCC incidence or prevalence 11 – In contrast, lip and buccal mucosa carcinomas only show intense pain at advanced stages, allowing for a long period without medical or dental attention 6. Campaigns and projects to encourage and promote the early diagnosis of cancer among health professionals are necessary. After analysing the high mortality rates evidenced in this study and the published reports, it can be concluded that this is a serious disease because of the difficulties of access to adequate treatment, medical professionals often not able to make the appropriate initial diagnosis, and neglect of patients not seeking care but having habits that trigger the disease, corroborating with several surveys 10 –
