Oral cancer is a leading cause of death, especially in developing countries. Head-and-neck squamous cell carcinoma is the sixth most common cancer worldwide. It accounts for 1.9% death annually due to delay in diagnosis and treatment strategies. Oral carcinogenesis is a multistep process. Recent advances in the understanding of the molecular control of these various pathways will facilitate more accurate diagnosis and assessment of prognosis and can pave the way for more novel approaches to treatment and prevention. This review highlights the major genes involved in oral carcinogenesis and emphasizes on the implementation of genomics, which can be the new paradigm for drug development and targeted therapeutics.
