Oral squamous cell carcinoma(OSCC) is the second most common cancer in India as per GLOBOCON 2020 data; 135929 cases of lip ad oral cavity in male and 104661 in female. Mortality due to OSCC is ranked third among all cancer. These numbers are concerning and thought provoking. Its high time, we as clinicians in particular and a society in general must introspect ourselves where we are lacking behind.
