This study indicates that an Oral Cancer Screening programme targeted at high risk 1nd1viduals 1s feasible, acceptable and effect1ve. In a senes of 210 residents, 60% of whom were outside the ideal target age for Head and Neck Cancer, a total of 84 mucosal abnormalities were detected. Thirteen of the 28 Extra-Oral Lesions/ENT symptoms and 19 of the 56 Intra-Oral lesions were potentially significant. Despite the poor compliance rate for further investigation, two premalignant les1ons were detected in the mam study group, a detect1on rate of 0.9%. Furthermore, a malignant Basal Cell Cancer, which had 1nvaded mto deep dermis. was detected in the sub-group excluded from the main study. If these residents are included, the detection rate for malignant and premalignant lesions rises to 1.3% (3/220).
