A retrospective case-control study of 713 male oral-cancer patients seen at Tata Memorial Hospital, Bombay, during 19801984 was undertaken to assess the association between chewing, smoking and alcohol habits.
Male controls were chosen among those persons who attended the hospital during the same period and were diagnosed as free from cancer, benign tumour and infectious disease.
Statistical analysis was based on unconditional logistic regression and the confidence interval for RR was calculated using the standard error of the estimates.
Established factors such as tobacco chewing and bidi smoking showed a significant association with oral cancer.
