Abstract

Oral cancer is a prevalent disease in the United States and accounts for the death and deformity of many patients every year. As time progresses there are more new cases. Adequate evaluation and staging are paramount in providing patients with the best chance of cure and survival. During diagnosis and treatment, it is recommended that a multidisciplinary team discusses each particular case to integrate the opinion and expertise of each specialty involved. These opinions help to find the best possible solution regarding a patient's needs given what is available at the time. Modern medical technology gives us valuable means for this purpose and will continue to evolve and provide even more possibilities to help our patients. It is important to continue to stress prevention, screening, and adequate diagnosis and treatment modalities for oral cancer.
