About the Book

This Oral Precancer: Diagnosis and Management of Potentially Malignant Disorders is edited by Peter Thomson. Without early detection, oral cancer is deadly. Protect your patients by applying the latest clinical interventions. Rates of new oral cancer cases continue to increase and mortality rates remain alarmingly high. Oral cancer may be preceded by clinically identifiable precancerous changes in the oral mucosa, which offer a therapeutic window of opportunity to intervene and halt disease progression to carcinoma development.

Written and edited by prominent researchers in the field, this First Edition textbook of Oral Precancer reviews current scientific research on precancer conditions of the oral cavity providing evidence-based analysis of the nature and behavior of potentially malignant and deforming oral diseases.

Features

– Explains the principles of prevention, diagnosis and management of potentially malignant disorders of the oral cavity.
– Details a practical and reliable interventional treatment strategy to facilitate early diagnosis and effective treatment of both precancer and early invasive carcinoma.
– Contains a chapter devoted to illustrative case histories, high-quality, color, clinical photos, reference sections in each chapter listing relevant review articles, and more From start to finish.
– Oral Precancer offers undergraduate students, clinicians, and professors an invaluable resource to minimise the morbidity and mortality of this most significant and life threatening of oral conditions.
