Who is susceptible to oral cancer?

Oral cancer is the sixth most common tumor in the world, which can occur in any part of tongue, cheek, jaw and periodontal tissue. The incidence rate of men is 1 to 5 times higher than that of women.

Oral cancer is a major problem in developing China. The incidence of oral cancer is related to the increase of age. The incidence rate rises sharply after the age of 40. With the increase of the aging population in the world, more elderly people will be at high risk of oral cancer. The risk increases sharply with age, from 7/100,000 for men aged 30 to 80/100,000 for men aged 60.

Smoking and drinking are the most important risk factors for oral cancer. The risk of oral cancer increases with the number of cigarettes smoked every day and the number of years of smoking. The increase in the incidence of oral cancer is directly proportional to the consumption of alcohol. For example, Japanese men consume 60% more than women, and their oral cancer mortality rate is also higher. For both men and women, the risk of oral cancer was least associated with wine consumption. A study in the United States shows that if the alcohol content in gargles exceeds 25%, the risk of oral cancer will increase; If it is used for a long time and frequently, the risk will increase, especially if it is treated with gargles containing high concentration of alcohol, it will be more likely to cause canceration.
