Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The number of patients with oral cancer, especially those of an older age, has been growing. Generally speaking, diagnosis at a low stage is effective for a good prognosis, and recently, a new molecular target drug was found to prolong survival after recurrence and distant metastasis.

Although treatment results can be improved through chemoradiotherapy and surgery with wide resection and reconstruction, older patients suffering from any diseases that prevent the use of surgery and chemotherapy cannot receive aggressive treatment, and we must always consider the treatment appropriate for each patient according to their personal characteristics.

This Special Issue will publish new information on the diagnostics and treatment of oral cancer, including new molecular target drugs, treatment according to patients’ risk factors, complications, and post-treatment functional disorders. Reviews and case reports are welcome for submission.
