The results of the treatment of 13 patients under the age of 40 presenting with primary intra-oral squamous cell carcinoma have been presented. 31% (four patients) survived 3 years from first presentation and all patients who died had recurrent disease within 12 months of surgery. These figures suggest that younger patients with intra-oral cancer have a prognosis similar to an older, more typical cohort.
