ABSTRACT

Background: Betel nut and betel quid chewing are from major etiological factor for oral cancer. They also increase the risk of systemic diseases such as asthma, diabetes mellitus, metabolic syndrome, myocardial infarction, hypertension, and other cardiovascular diseases.

Methods: Sixty three patients of oral cancer in our institution during Jan. 2007 to May 2011 were included in our study. This study included 14 cases of lip carcinoma, 41 cases of buccal mucosa carcinoma, 7 cases of tongue carcinoma, and 1 case of carcinoma of upper alveolus. Duration of use of betel quid, pan masala, and gutkha were studied as well as management.

Results: All patients in our study have been chewing betel-quid for 6-31 years (mean19.42 years). All of them quit betel quid and used easily available panmasala and gutkha for 4-13 years (mean 8.28 years). Nine cases of lip carcinoma, 13 cases of buccal mucosa carcinoma and 3 cases of tongue carcinoma were treated with surgery. Seven cases of lip carcinoma, 30 cases of buccal mucosa carcinoma and 5 cases of tongue carcinoma were treated with post operative or palliative radiotherapy.

Conclusion: Betel nut chewing with or without tobacco and lime are proven to be carcinogens in human. Direct relationship between oral cancer and betel quid, gutkha, and panmasala use has been shown in our study. As betel quid, panmasala and gutkha chewing were proven to be carcinogens, a permanent ban on manufacturing and sale of these products should be implemented.

Mentions: All Stage 1 oral cancer patients in our study were treated by wide excision only and followed up for 6 months to 2 years. Three cases of lip carcinoma with stage 2 were treated by wide excision and postoperative radiotherapy (Figure 8). Two cases of buccal mucosa carcinoma with stage 2 were widely excised and were sent for postoperative radiotherapy, 8 patients were sent for radiotherapy as they refused surgery and 1 refused radiotherapy (Table 1). Out of 7 cases of lip carcinoma with stage 3, 3 patients refused treatment and 4 had wide excision with neck dissection and postoperative radiotherapy.
