Oral cancer is a serious and growing problem and it is the sixth most common cancer in the world. In high‑risk countries such as Srilanka, India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh, oral cancer is the most common cancer in men and may contribute up to 25% of all new cases.[1] The higher incidence of oral cancer and pre‑cancers has been linked with the habit of betel quid and tobacco chewing in India and it is estimated that among the 400 million individuals aged 15 years and above, 47% use tobacco in one form or the other in our country.[2]
