Detecting oral cancer at an early stage is critical to saving lives.

Only 4% of oral cancers are diagnosed in stage I and only 28% of cases are detected in stage II.

Up to 36% of the cases are diagnosed in the stage III and an additional 32% are diagnosed in stage IV.

Prognosis is closely related to the stage when therapy is started.

For patients with severe disease in an advanced stage, life expectancy is very limited: five years after treatment, only 27% of patients at stage III and only 5% of those at stage IV are still alive.
