Q&A: What are oral potentially malignant disorders?
Author: Sanketh DS, MDS
Certain red and white mucosal lesions/conditions in the oral cavity have been identified to have a potential to undergo malignant transformation to oral squamous cell carcinoma(OSCC). This has been reported in several longitudinal studies, where many such red/white lesions have undergone malignant transformation on subsequent follow-up. Also, several researches have reported the presence of genetic and molecular alterations in these lesions, the likes of which are also found in early invasive OSCCs.
