Abstract

Although the majority of lesions reported in children and adolescents are benign, it should be recognized that oral malignant tumors do occur in children. The incidence of childhood malignancy is greatest in the 1st year of life, with the second peak to be found at 2–3 years of age. Many clinicians do believe that oral cancer is particularly aggressive in young patients, and is associated with poorer survival compared to adults. Numerous early reports of oral cancer in young adults concluded that the disease was more aggressive, and prognosis was poorer than in older adults. Purpose of this study is to make a literature review on the diagnostic methods of the tumors of oral cavity in children. Conclusion. Despite the progress in technology and medicine paraclinical examination methods in determining tumors of the oral cavity in children haven’t been developed and studied enough, thourder studies have to be done in order to create diagnostic protocols for the pediatric population
