Squamous cell carcinoma of the oral cavity and pharynx accounts for over 34,000 cases per year in the United States with approximately 8,000 deaths per year(1,2). Unfortunately, the diagnosis continues to rely on patient presentation and physical examination with biopsy confirmation. This may result in delay in diagnosis accounting for the fact that the majority of these cancers are diagnosed at a late stage (1, 3-5). Studies confirm that survival does correlate with stage, making early diagnosis and treatment optimal for this disease….

….New data related to the HPV16 virus may indicate that these trends are changing…

Current research indicates that HPV positive disease is rapidly changing these ratios and age groups. Younger, non smoking patients under the age of 50 are the fastest growing segment of the oral cancer population.
