Abstract

INTRODUCTION: Of the many different factors associated with an increased risk for oral squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), tobacco and alcohol seems to be the best studied. The aim of the current study was to evaluate the clinicopathologic characteristics of patients without the mentioned risk factors. Patients and Methods From 278 patients (159 male and 119 female patients) with oral SCC, 67 patients were without a history of tobacco or alcohol use. The minimum follow-up time was 12 months. RESULTS: Of the 67 patients, 45 (67.2%) were women and the mean age was 70 years. The most common tumor sites were mandibular alveolar ridge: 22 and maxilla: 18. Fifteen patients experienced a recurrence and 10 developed lymph node metastases during the follow-up period. CONCLUSION: The group of patients without tobacco and alcohol use tends to have a higher female portion, higher potion of patients being over 70 years and a higher number of oral maxillary SCC.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
