Oral cancer is a predominant health issue in India affecting large number of population, with tobacco as one of the main preventable etiological factor for it. Early diagnosis is essential factor in lessening the burden of disease and molecular non-invasive (Salivary-based) diagnostics is considered as the up trending approach recently.
