While the number of patients with mouth cancer in people over 40 years is predominantly male, when examining the younger audience who develop the disease early, the profile is inverted. That's what a survey conducted at the Faculty of Dentistry, University of Campinas (UNICAMP) who studied the behavior of oral cancer.

The goal of the dentist, Roger Santos Silva, who specializes in dentistry and author of the study was to map the main features of the tumor in oral language and oral cavity in younger persons, although the incidence is rare before age 40.

We analyzed cases of patients seen in the last 20 years in four specialized centers in different countries. The results showed that in younger, 43% of patients were women, half did not smoke and 41% did not drink. This set of features is very different from the mapped by the national survey of oral cancer published in the Journal of Otolaryngology. In this study done with 300 patients of all ages (mean age 57 years), 81% were men, 76.8% smokers and 74% of alcohol consumers.

The answer to such different characteristics of oral cancer according to age is not yet clear, but for the author of the genetic research related to cancer was more intense than in older.
