Oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) is a lethal and deforming disease of rising global significance. Although traditionally presenting in older patients, evidence suggests that OSCC is increasingly seen in the young (≤45 years at diagnosis), who are believed to exhibit aggressive disease and poor prognosis. By reviewing a cohort of 467 consecutive OSCC patients treated over a 19-year period, this study investigates the demographic profile, clinicopathological features and clinical outcomes characteristic of young OSCC patients in Hong Kong.
