Oral cancer is a major public health problem in India. It is one of the top three types of cancer in the country. Increase in incidence can be attributed to aging of population as well as some regional differences in the prevalence of specific risk factors. The low-income groups in India are affected most due to wide exposure to risk factors such as tobacco chewing and insufficient exposure to screening resulting in a delay in reporting of oral cancer.
