Lecture title: Alerting Signs Facing an Oral Ulceration

Lecture abstract:  Oral mucosal ulcerations are common. Most are self-resolving and transient. Some may require intervention of a medical or dental treatment. Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) represents about 95% of all oral malignancies. We will discuss all symptoms and signs that conclude our diagnosis. SCC has poor prognosis and poor morbidity.
