Oral Cancer

Oral cancer is among the 10 most common cancers worldwide. Surgical resection, or surgical removal of the cancerous tumours or tissues affected by the cancer, is still the standard treatment, which can lead to significant functional impairment.

Next steps

FDI will produce a practical guide on Management of Patients with Cancer and Oral Cancer Prevention. Developed together with FDI industry partner Sunstar, this practical guide is for all dental practitioners to use in their daily practice. Once the guide is released, it will be disseminated to all FDI National Dental Associations.

FDI will launch a communications campaign to ensure maximum impact.
