Oral cancers are considered as the 6th most common predominant cancers in males. Some of the etiological components include viruses, alcohol and tobacco. Most common viruses include Hepatitis C virus, Epstein-Barr virus, Herpes simplex virus (HSV) and human papilloma virus (HPV). No doubt, the role of viruses is inevitable in progression and initiation of OSCC (Oral Squamous Cell Carcinoma). Rapid detection of these viruses can result in prevention and early treatment so that disease will not be progressed further.
