Cancer de la cavité orale : mise en place d'une campagne de prévention et d'éducation à l'auto-examen

Abstract : Oral cancer, due to its incidence and its mortality, is one of the ten most common and aggressive cancers in France. Consequently, oral cancer is a major public health problem. The mortality rate results from a late diagnosis, which leads to a poor prognosis. However, cancer of the oral cavity could be avoided. In order to decrease the human and economic impacts, it is necessary to conduct preventive and early screening actions. There are two objectives in this study. The first objective is to advise the population on oral cancer risk factors, through the development of a large prevention campaign. The second objective is to train healthcare professionals who are involved in the diagnosis of the cancer. They would raise awareness more specifically for the patients with risk factors and would educate them to self-examination training. The implementation of the campaign was drawn on bibliographic researches regarding current prevention campaigning around the world. The study begins with the description of oral cancer epidemiology, the second part presents the risk factors, the third part lists the different types of oral lesions of the oral cavity, which are potentially malignant and finally, the last part develops the awareness-raising campaign including self-examination of oral injuries in the context of oral cancer prevention. A model of an original campaign, on the long run and supported by the media is therefore proposed. It would be entitled: “The campaign which leaves your mouth painless”.
