Oral cancer is the most common cancer in India and according to Dr Geoff Craig "People are dying of oral cancer because of ignorance".

Dr Surendra Shastri head of preventive oncology at TATA MEMORIAL HOSPITAL gave us a stunning information that
"There are about 7,00,000 new cases of cancers every year in India out of which tobacco related cancers are about 3,00,000. Cost of treatment of oral cancer is about 3.5 lakh. This can be completely prevented by simple changes in lifestyle and regular screening and even have health benefits that reach beyond cancer."
About 2000 deaths a day in India is tobacco related.
According to the B.B.C "4 in 10 of all cancers in India are oral cancers"
.

There a number of Photographs of Oral Cancer on this site which can be used for awareness purpose free of cost with due acknowledgement. The acknowledgement should go as follows.
