  3. 3.  Age is the primary risk factor for oral cancer. Approximately 90% of oral cancer victims are age 40 and older, recent studies indicate that increasingly, patients younger than age 40 are being diagnosed with oral cancer.  Though tobacco and alcohol use are the primary lifestyle risk factors that contribute to the development of oral cancer, 27% of oral cancer victims do not use tobacco or alcohol, and have no lifestyle risk factors.  Oral cancer affects men more than women; 2:1, but oral cancer in women is on the rise nationwide.  Lifestyle risk factors for oral cancer include: Tobacco use (any type, any age, within 10 years) Alcohol consumption of at least 1 drink per day (3 ounces of hard liquor, 4 ounces of wine, or 12 ounces of beer)  Other risk factors include immune deficiencies such as HIV & AIDS and Human Papilloma Virus (HPV 16/18) Oral Cancer :Risk by Patient Profile For more details visit http://www.smilecareworld.com
