Course: 9:00 AM - 4:30 PM

Lecture: CEU(s) - 6

Education Method: Live Interactive Format

The present course broadens the scope of oral cancer to include cancer of the salivary glands, lymphoid tissues and oral mucosa. With the increase in solid organ transplants (kidney, liver, etc) becoming common place therapies, the accompanying immunosuppression places new risks for these patients to develop lymphoid malignancies as well as other cancers. The risk factors associated with salivary gland cancers vary from those of oral mucous membranes and lymphoid tissues. The basis for salivary gland cancers is discussed and provides guidelines for clinical diagnosis and assessing prognosis for these cancers. Finally, cancer of the oral mucous membranes, which is the most prevalent form of oral malignancies appears to be diminishing, however, there is a dramatic increasing incidence of oral pharyngeal cancers associated with human papilloma viruses. The basis for acquiring these cancers, the pathophysiology and clinical management of these conditions is discussed.

At the completion of this course, the participant will be able to:
Describe and assess the possible genetic, environmental and life style risks for the development of cancers involving the oral cavity, salivary glands and associated lymphoid tissues.
•Have better understanding of premalignant and malignant lesion management;
Better understand the prospects for future cancer management and predictive prognosis.
