Oral cancer is the sixth most common cancer in the United States, killing at a rate of one person per hour every day. 50% of all patients diagnosed with oral cancer die within 5 years.
The frequency of oral cancer in adults under the age of 40 has increased 60% over the past 30 years.
Risk factors including tobacco use, frequent alcohol consumption, a compromised immune system, a history of cancer, or the presence of Human Papillion Virus; all increase the likelihood of contracting this deadly disease.
