Abstract

Oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) is a significant public health problem worldwide. More than 95% of the carcinomas of the oral cavity are of squamous cell type, in nature. The development of OSCC is a multistep process requiring the accumulation of multiple genetic alterations, influenced by environmental influences, including tobacco products, alcohol consmption, viral infection, chronic inflammation and also patient's genetic predisposition. Here we present a case of oral squamous cell carcinoma of palate in a 62-year-old male patient.
