Oral cancer is the sixth most common cancer in the world. It accounts for approximately 4% of all cancers and 2% of all cancer deaths worldwide. Malignant tumors of the oral cavity account for approximately 30% of all head and neck cancers. With an incidence rate of invasive lip and oral cavity tumors in The Netherlands rising to 6.6%, oral cancer is a common malignancy that often requires resection of the tumor followed by reconstruction.
