Abstract

Description: Update of the 2004 U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommendation on screening for oral cancer. Methods: The USPSTF reviewed the evidence on whether screening for oral cancer reduces morbidity or mortality and on the accuracy of the oral screening examination for identifying oral cancer or potentially malignant disorders that have a high likelihood of progression to oral cancer. Population: This recommendation applies to asymptomatic adults aged 18 years or older who are seen by primary care providers. This recommendation focuses on screening of the oral cavity performed by primary care providers and not dental providers or otolaryngologists. Recommendation: The USPSTF concludes that the current evidence is insufficient to assess the balance of benefits and harms of screening for oral cancer in asymptomatic adults.
