The program stresses that cancer in different oral sites presents with different problems. The presentation includes the symptoms, incidence and distribution of cancer of the lower lip, tongue and floor of the mouth. The program presents a routine examination with emphasis on the symptoms representative of cancer. The program includes history taking and biopsy and discusses briefly the surgical treatment and management of oral lesions which prove cancerous.
