  1. Risk factors for advanced-stage oral cavity cancer.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective 

    To assess the association between risk factors for inadequate surveillance of oral cavity cancer and stage of disease (localized, T1, T2/N0 vs advanced, T1, T2/N1-3, T3, T4/N0 or N1-3).

    Design 

    Convenience sample from a case series.

    Setting 

    Otolaryngology clinic in a tertiary care hospital.

    Participants 

    Fifty-three patients with cancer of the oral cavity who were treated at The University of Iowa, Iowa City, from October 1990 through March 1994, participated in the study.

    Selection criteria included pathologic confirmation of squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the oral cavity, the capacity to retrieve data regarding tumor characteristics at initial presentation, and completion of a 30-item questionnaire by the patient.

    Intervention 

    Administration of questionnaire identifying factors contributing to inadequate surveillance of cancer of the oral cavity.

    Outcome Measurements 

    Advanced-stage cancer of the oral cavity was identified by the presence of large tumors (T3, T4) and cancer metastatic to the neck lymph nodes (N1, N2, N3).

    Comparison groups were built to determine the relationship between these two dependent variables and multiple independent variables.

    Descriptive statistics and tests of association were used to assess relationships.

    Results 

    Two of the 53 patients performed self oral examinations specifically designed to screen for cancer prior to finding cancer of the oral cavity. (...)
