The prevalence of Oral and Oropharyngeal Cancer continues to rise worldwide, related to the increase in consumption of tobacco, alcohol and other carcinogenic products. However, there has also been a significant reduction in mortality due to increasing awareness, early diagnosis and advances in treatments. This second edition of a bestseller reviews every aspect of the diagnosis and treatment of the orofacial cancer patient. As with the first edition, the book is organized in three parts, covering Pathology and Biology, Clinical Management, and Outcomes and Follow-up.
