      TONGUE CANCER A CASE WITH UNFAVORABLE CLINICAL EVOLUTION (Abstract): We have studied tongue cancer because of the increased incidence in recent decades, both in Europe and United States. Despite numerous campaigns against this disease, there was no influence on the patients’ addressability by physicians during onset symptoms. Risk factors for carcinogenesis are multiple: tobacco (especially combined with alcohol), local irritation for a period of time, predisposition, and some types of viruses (human papilloma virus – particularly types 16 and 18, herpes simlex virus) etc. The prognosis is strongly influenced by TNM. The more often used treatment is surgical therapy.
Key words: ORAL CANCER, MAXILLOFACIAL PROSTHETICS, QUALITY OF LIFE
