The most frequent malignant tumor of the oral cavity is squamous cell carcinoma, tumor that should be easy recognizable and treated successfully if diagnosed at an early stage. Unfortunately, many of this tumors remain unrecognized until advanced stages when treatment demands extensive surgery or chemoradiotherapy. Treating oral cancer in late stages is often combined with poor outcomes, incomplete recovery and lower quality of life. The authors outline the most important questions necessary for early diagnosis and better understanding of the disease with a goal of preventing delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis of an oral cavity cancer.
