GARCIA KASS, A.I. et al. Review and updating in tongue cancer. Av Odontoestomatol [online]. 2013, vol.29, n.5, pp.255-269. ISSN 2340-3152.

Aim: To review and update the epidemiological aspects, risk factors, diagnostic and therapeutic aspects of tongue cancer. Material and Methods: a review of the literature has been achieved in the PUBMED database, using the main keyword "tongue cancer", and the subheadings: "diagnosis", "epidemiology", "aetiology", "genetics", "mortality" and "treatment", without restrictions in terms of type of study, choosing only those papers considered of interest for a review. The information has been completed with other bibliographic sources such as cancer registries and Oncology essays. The research has been restricted to papers in English or Spanish. Additionally, data of the Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) Program of the National Cancer Institute have been used to obtain incidence and mortality data of cancer in the United States, and of GLOBOCAN for data concerning other 184 countries in the world. Results: A total of 1200 papers have been reviewed, with a research period comprising between 1st January 1990 and 31st Mars 2013, including reviews about the epidemiology of the tumour, the genetic risk factors and the different aspects of the diagnosis and treatment, a prospective and a randomized study.

Palabras clave : Tongue cancer; diagnosis; epidemiology; aetiology; genetics; mortality; treatment.
