Delays at various levels in the management pathway of oral cancer have previously been reviewed.
It is a clinical impression that advanced tumours are being misdiagnosed by practitioners and consequently delays in referral are still prevalent.

The results indicated that despite seeing similar populations of patients with oral cancer, the medical practitioner was better at diagnosing and referring cases early, and nothing the relevance of lymphadenopathy.
