Cancer continues to be the leading cause of death in Scotland for people under the age of 75 years (Cancer in Scotland, 2004).

Oral cancer affects the lip, mouth or the tongue, and around 617 new oral cancer cases are identified in Scotland each year and in the UK as a whole in 2006, there were 4,660 cancers of the oral cavity and pharynx.
