It is common knowledge that apparently similar tumors often show different responses to therapy. This experience has generated the idea that histologically similar tumors could have biologically distinct behaviour. The development of effective therapy therefore, has the explicit challenge of understanding biological behaviour of a tumor. The question is which parameters in a tumor could relate to its biological behaviour ? It is now recognised that the development of malignancy requires an alteration in the program of terminal differentiation in addition to aberrant growth control. In this study therefore, ultrastructural markers that relate to defective terminal differentiation and possibly invasive potential of cells have been identified in human oral leukoplakias, erythroleukoplakias and squamous cell carcinomas of the tongue.

Background: Oral cancer burden in developing countries is huge. In Bangladesh and India incidence were 10.6% and 10.4% respectively on 2018. At the same time worldwide incident was only 2%. Majority patients present at advanced stage and their survival rate is poor. Diagnostic delay from patient side and health delivery system side is significantly longer and it is more in developing countries. Like other malignancy early diagnosis can save a lot of these patient. Methods: This prospective study was carried out in Khulna Medical College Hospital from July 2017 to July 2019. Patients who will meet the criteria for this prospective study and capable and willing to give informed consent were enrolled. 20 second rinse/gargle with 10ml of 1% Tolonium chloride solution was done. Biopsy were taken from stained lesion, biopsy report were compared with TC stained lesions. Results: Out of 1650 patients in our outdoor department for various problem and only 30 cases were selected for this study according to selection criteria. Of 30 patients, 18 (60%) were male and 12 (40%) were female. The male-to-female ratio was 3:2. It was found that the sensitivity of 1% Tolonium Chloride rinse for oral precancer and cancer detection was 83.33%, whereas the specificity was 84.21%. Conclusion: Tolonium chloride rinse is a good screening test for oral cancer diagnosis with sensitivity 83.33% and specificity 84.21%. Bangladesh J Otorhinolaryngol; April 2020; 26(1): 11-17
