Risk of multiple primary tumors following oral squamous-cell carcinoma.
The follow-up of 727 patients with squamous-cell carcinoma (SCC) of the lip and oral cavity has been used for the risk analysis of multiple primary tumors (MPTs) following SCC of the lip and oral cavity.
Age-, genderand site-specific cancer-incidence rates from the general population have been applied to the appropriate pewons-years of follow-up of patients with SCC of the lip and oral cavity.
The study indicates that patients with a primary SCC of the lip and oral cavity have, compared with the general population, a significantly elevated risk of developing an additional cancer of the oral cavity and/or pharynx, the risk being 74.7-fold for males and 190.4-fold for females.
