Abstract:   (7050 Views)
57 cases of jaw's SCC who were hospitalized in Imam Khomeini HSP, Amir-Alam HSP & Cancer Institute between the years of 1373 to 1376, were studied. 23 cases of them were female and the rest of them (34 cases) were male. The range of age of patients was between 25 to 85 years. 21 cases (36.8%) have maxillary involvement and 37 cases (64.9%) have mandibular involvement and there was one case (1.7%) of synchronous involvement of both sites. Patients were categorized according to their individual characteristics (sex, age, occupation, birth & living place), etiologic factors (smoking & familial susceptibility), complaints, sites of involvement in each jaw, histopathological characteristics of tumor (stage, grade, lymphatic involvement), rate of bone and soft tissue involvement, type of treatment, and recurrences of previous lesions. According to the results, and apart from late consultation of majority of patients with their physicians, invasive behaviours of tumoral lesions were less than expected rate. And despite of using radical and invasive treatments, considerable percent of patients were facing recurrence of their previous lesions. Besides, patterns of distribution of birth and living places of patients may probably show the role of geographical and environmental factors in making patients susceptible to certain diseases.
