Sažetak
Introduction: Oral cancer is one of the ten cancers with the poorest prognosis in humans, mainly due to diagnosis in advanced stages. Apart from being asymptomatic in the early stage, lack of general populations' knowledge contributes to the late diagnosis. According to some studies nearly half of the general population has never heard about oral cancer. Objective: The aim of the study was to examine oral cancer awareness, knowledge of etiology and risk perception for developing oral cancer in the screening population. Material and Methods: An anonymous questionnaire was distributed to 230 individuals. who came to free oral screening during the Oral Head and Neck Cancer Awareness Week (OHANCAW) in Zagreb, Croatia. Results: A great majority (178 ; 85%) of participants have heard about oral cancer and 110 ; 47.8% have heard about oral cancer screening. One hundred eighty eight (87%) participants knew that smoking was the main causative factor. The knowledge increased with participants' education. Unfortunately, smokers presented only as a minortiy of participants (32 ; 14%). The majority of smokers (18 ; 60%) were aware of their increased risk for developing oral cancer than the nonsmokers of the same age and sex. Conclusions: Compared to other studies, our participants displayed high level of knowledge on oral cancer. The results also pointed out that we should more actively approach high risk populations for future oral cancer screening activities.
