Cafe MED: Oral cancer - whose problem is it?




Join us for this informal talk bringing together leading bio-science researchers and clinicians.

Speakers: Dr Rasha Abu-Eid (Senior Lecturer in Oral Sciences) and Dr Karolin Hijazi (Senior Clinical Lecturer in Oral Medicine), University of Aberdeen.

In the past oral cancer has been almost exclusively associated with smoking and alcohol consumption, but now we are beginning to understand that there are more factors involved. It’s a major health problem in Scotland with numbers of patients exceeding that of cervical and testicular cancer combined.
