Tongue carcinoma in young adults: a review of the literature.

Acta Otorhinolaryngol Ital 2018 Jun;38(3):175-180

Department of Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, Fondazione IRCCS, Istituto Nazionale dei Tumori di Milano, University of Milan, Italy.

Summary: A recent reduction in the number of smoke-related tumours has been observed thanks to the diffusion of anti-tobacco campaigns carried out in the majority of developed countries. Nevertheless, as demonstrated by recent global epidemiologic studies, squamous cell carcinoma of the mobile tongue appears to be progressively increasing in incidence, particularly among young adults and especially in females. The driving mechanism responsible for such changes is still to be precisely defined. Read More

Caffeic acid reduces the viability and migration rate of oral carcinoma cells (SCC-25) exposed to low concentrations of ethanol.

Int J Mol Sci 2014 Oct 17;15(10):18725-41. Epub 2014 Oct 17.

Department of Physiology, School of Medicine with the Division of Dentistry, Medical University of Silesia in Katowice, Jordana 19, 41-808 Zabrze, Poland.

Alcohol increases the risk of carcinoma originated from oral epithelium, but the biological effects of ultra-low doses of ethanol on existing carcinoma cells in combination with natural substances are still unclear. A role for ethanol (EtOH), taken in small amounts as an ingredient of some beverages or mouthwashes to change the growth behavior of established squamous cell carcinoma, has still not been examined sufficiently. We designed an in vitro study to determine the effect of caffeic acid (CFA) on viability and migration ability of malignant oral epithelial keratinocytes, exposed to ultra-low concentrations (maximum 100 mmol/L) EtOH.

Department of Oral Diagnosis, School of Dentistry, State University of Campinas, Piracicaba, SP, Brazil. Electronic address:

Although several histopathological parameters and grading systems have been described as predictive of the treatment response and outcome of oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC), none is universally accepted. A new scoring system, the histological risk model, was recently described to be a powerful predictive tool for recurrence and overall survival in OSCC. The aim of this study was to verify the predictive role of the histological risk model in a cohort of 202 patients at all stages of oral/mobile tongue squamous cell carcinoma (OTSCC). Read More
