Abstract/Summary Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma (HNSCC) is the sixth most prevalent neoplasm in the world, with approximately 900,000 cases diagnosed worldwide (Chin, Boyle et al. 2006). The chronic use of tobacco and alcohol consumption has long been recognized as prominent risk factors in the development of oral cancer (Hashibe, Brennan et al. 2009). Oral Cancer is the 8th and 13th most common malignancy in the world for males and females respectively. Up to 80 % of these cancers occur in Asia (Cheong, Chandramouli et al. 2009). Precancerous and cancerous oral lesions may mimic any number of benign oral lesions, and as such may be left without investigation and treatment until well advanced. [Introduction extract]
