Description

Today head and neck oral cancers continue to have a nearly 50% mortality rate at 5 years.This equals 40,000 deaths annually in the U.S. with 370,000 worldwide. It is predicted that there will be a world-wide oral cancer epidemic by mid-21st century. Predictions are based on the past and current situations. The wonderful part of predictions is they can be wrong. The dental healthcare team can make plans to circumvent that future death rate, not by being reactive, rather by more proactively identifying risks for oral precancer.
