Oral cavity is often referred to as the reflection of the systemic condition of the body in health and disease. The most common oral mucosal diseases that have a very high malignant transformation rate are oral leukoplakia, oral erythroplakia, oral submucous fibrosis with the most frequently reported etiological agents being tobacco, alcohol, chewing of betel quid containing areca nut. Enormous research in the relevant field has reduced the time for reaching a conclusive diagnosis, but sometimes they are not as definite as a biopsy.
