This talk will discuss the etiology, possible prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of premalignant and potentially malignant lesions of the oral cavity. It will discuss the pathological diagnosis of dysplasia and its treatment and prognosis. Clinical conditions such as Leukoplakia, lichen planus, and proliferative verrucous leukoplakia (PVL) will be discussed. We will also review the various technologies that are available to possibly aid in the early detection of dysplasia and oral cancer.

Upon completion of this lecture, attendees should:

  • Be aware of the classification system for premalignant lesions of the oral cavity
  • Be able to evaluate the available aids for early diagnosis of oral cancer
  • Understand the available preventive measures and treatment options for intraoral dysplasia
