Following breast and lung cancers, renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is the third most frequent cancer to metastasize to the head and neck region, though such cases are rarely reported. Distinguishing between malignant tumors of salivary gland origin and metastatic RCC is very important. The case of a 75-year-old man with an oral cavity lesion in the left buccal submucosa measuring 40×30 mm that had grown substantially over several weeks is presented. His medical history included left kidney cancer 26 years earlier and a malignant myoepithelioma of the left buccal region 7 years earlier...

Oral cavity cancer is a type of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) and contributes to significant morbidity and mortality each year. An epigenetic pathway of transcriptional inactivation for many genes has been described in various cancers, including HNSCC. For our study, we selected genes for which silencing caused by hypermethylation can promote cancer development. In 75 primary HNSCC tumours and paired surgical margins, we investigated the methylation status of the p16, APC, MGMT, TIMP3 and CDH1 gene promoters by methylation-specific PCR after bisulphite treatment...

OBJECTIVES: Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC), mainly due to smoking, is one of the leading causes of cancer deaths. However, an increasing number of tumors - especially oropharyngeal cancer - are reported in non-smokers in association with the human papillomavirus (HPV). As HIV-infected individuals are particularly at risk of HPV-related disease, we aimed to describe the burden of HNSCC in this population. METHODS: Retrospective chart review of patients from HIV clinics diagnosed with HNSCC between 2004 and 2014...

OBJECTIVES: Oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) is the most common malignancy of oral cavity. Despite advances in therapeutic approaches, the 5-year survival rate for oral cancer has not improved in the last three decades. Therefore, new molecular targets for early diagnosis and treatment of OSCC are needed. In the present study, we focused on the enzyme nicotinamide N-methyltransferase (NNMT). We have previously shown that enzyme expression is upregulated in OSCC and NNMT knockdown in PE/CA PJ-15 cells significantly decreased cell growth in vitro and tumorigenicity in vivo...

Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) is commonly diagnosed at an advanced stage and prognosis for such patients is poor. There remains a gap in our understanding of genetic variants related with HNSCC prognosis. MicroRNA-related single nucleotide polymorphisms (miR-SNPs) are a class of genetic variants with gene regulatory potential. We used a genome-scale approach and independent patient populations in a two-stage approach to test 40,286 common miR-SNPs for association with HNSCC survival in the discovery population (n = 847), and selected the strongest associations for replication in validation phase cases (n = 1236)...

Colon cancer is the third leading cause of cancer-related mortality worldwide and colon cancer metastases in rare sites, such as the oral cavity, lead to a worse prognosis. Oral metastasis is a rare clinical condition and it represents only the 1% among all oral cavity neoplasms. A multidisciplinary approach is recommended to carry out a correct diagnostic procedure that allows distinguishing between metastatic and primitive lesions of the oral cavity. Quick diagnosis and management are fundamental to take an appropriate action as early as possible, as usually the prognosis in patients with oral metastases of colon carcinoma is poor...

OBJECTIVE: To explore the utility of MR texture analysis (MRTA) for detection of nodal extracapsular spread (ECS) in oral cavity squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). METHODS: 115 patients with oral cavity SCC treated with surgery and adjuvant (chemo)radiotherapy were identified retrospectively. First-order texture parameters (entropy, skewness and kurtosis) were extracted from tumour and nodal regions of interest (ROIs) using proprietary software (TexRAD). Nodal MR features associated with ECS (flare sign, irregular capsular contour; local infiltration; nodal necrosis) were reviewed and agreed in consensus by two experienced radiologists...

Background: Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is the most commonly occurring malignant tumor in the oral cavity. In South Korea, it occurs most frequently in the mandible, tongue, maxilla, buccal mucosa, other areas of the oral cavity, and lips. Radial forearm free flap (RFFF) is the most widely used reconstruction method for the buccal mucosal defect. The scar of the forearm donor, however, is highly visible and unsightly, and a secondary surgical site is needed when such technique is applied...
