A case-control human study was carried out among biopsy proven oral cancer (Oral Squamous Cell Carcinoma-OSCC) cases (n=195) identified as high-risk group of population in an underserved community of SE Asian countries. A profile of personal habit and its association with the occurrence of oral cancer was estimated to explore an interrelationship between the two. The study revealed the highest number (95%) of oral cancer cases who had chewing quid habit for more than 15 years and chewed 10-15 times a day. Quid chewing is one of the commonest personal habits in SE Asian population, is an identified associated factor for high incidence rate of oral cancer (35% of all cancers)- a cause of a high death toll each year in SE Asian countries.
