Preface

Preface:

Oral cancer is a major public health problem all over the world but particularly in the Indian subcontinent. With well-known risk factors—tobacco and alcohol—and the potential for screening, effective measures for prevention and control are warranted. Cytological examination is a well-established and effective method of screening for cervical cancer, and signi fi cant gains have been made in the control of this form of cancer by the routine use of exfoliative cytology. Application of cytology in the oral cavity is not common but it could be used for screening of patients with suspicious premalignant and malignant conditions of the oral cavity. Hence this monograph, designed to provide a state-of-the-art review of the major issues speci fi c to the fi eld of oral cytology, is very timely . This book provides a comprehensive review of all aspects of oral cytology including sample collection, manual/automated analysis, pitfalls, gray zones, and controversies in diagnosis. Ancillary techniques such as DNA ploidy, molecular biology, and biomarkers are also discussed. The book is extensively illustrated with excellent cytological images.
