INTRODUCTION: Oral cancer is one of the leading cancers in the world. However, In India, it is one of the most common cancer and constitutes a major public health problem. OBJECTIVES: The aim of the study is to identify incidence rates of oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) at specific anatomic sites, age, gender and habits groups in the West Bangalore population.MATERIALS AND METHODS: 85 cases from January 2011 to November 2015 of OSCC was retrospectively analysed from Dept of Oral & Maxillofacial Pathology, Rajarajeswari Dental College and Hospital, Bangalore. They were analysed using chi-square statistics. RESULTS: The study revealed a male to female ratio of 1.6: 1 with largest number of OSCCs developing in the fourth & fifth decade of life. Overall, the most common site was buccal mucosa(55.29%), followed by tongue(20%), lip(7%), gum(5.88%), retromolararea(3.52%),maxilla(3.52%), mandible(3.52%), floor of the mouth (1.17%).The higher incidence habit causing OSCC was smokeless tobacco in males than females. Contingency coefficient based on chi-square statistics was calculated to find the degree of association between the two variables i.e. gender to buccal mucosa & gender to smokeless & smoking tobacco habits, which were found to be positively with respect to age. CONCLUSION: Our study shows greater incidence of OSSCs in buccal mucosa, which contradict previous studies was tongue. Further studies are required to show with regards to site.

Keywords: Epidemiology, Oral squamous cell carcinoma, clinical data.
