Course Description:

Oral cancer is the 17th most common cancer globally, 3rd most common cancer in India (most common cancer among males), and 18th most common in the US, with a low 5-year survival rate. Tobacco is the primary risk factor for oral cancer. However, in 2012, the International Agency of Research of Cancer showed sufficient evidence for an association of a subtype of HPV 16 with oral cancers. This seminar will discuss the basic biology and epidemiology of such HPV-related oral cancers, a brief overview of the role of the virus in benign oral lesions, and elaboration on its role as a risk factor in oral potentially malignant and malignant lesions. Multiple case discussions will be included on some of the common oral potentially malignant disorders/oral cancer cases encountered in India.

Educational Objectives:
At the end of this session the student will have clinically relevant knowledge of:

  • Basic HPV biology, epidemiology and contagious characteristics
  • The role of HPV in benign oral lesions
  • The role of HPV in oral potentially malignant disorders
  • The role of HPV in oral cancer development and behavior
