The incidence of cancer has increased significantly worldwide, being one of the most important public health problems. Oral cancer has its multifactorial etiology, resulting from the interaction of intrinsic and extrinsic carcinogenic factors. The main risk factors for its development are: tobacco, alcohol, malnutrition, heredity, solar radiation and constant trauma. The literature shows the close correlation between cases of oral cancer and factors considered at risk, such as smoking and alcoholism, used alone and even more pronounced if both factors are associated with each other. Oral cancer is a disease that has a well-defined predilection, but can vary its epidemiology. It was noticed that oral cancer affects more males and has a preference for the white race after the 40 years of age.
