AbstractThe objectives of this analysis were to determine the prevalence of oral mucosal lesions (OML) among adults in Southern China and to determine possible associations between OML and reported tobacco-smoking and alcohol-drinking habits. The sample consisted of 1573 35- to 44-year-old and 1515 65- to 74-year-old Chinese from both urban and rural areas of Guangdong Province. The subjects were interviewed by trained interviewers and underwent a clinical examination of the oral mucosa performed according to WHO guidelines. A specially prepared color atlas of OML was used for lesion recognition and confirmation during the survey. Among the 35- to 44-year-old subjects, the overall prevalence of OML was found to be 13% in urban men, 6% in urban women, 15% in rural men, and 4% in rural women. The corresponding figures for the 65- to 74-year-olds were 22%, 12%, 26%, and 19%. Tongue lesions and white lesions were relatively common, but denture-related lesions were not. No malignancies or erythroplakia was observed. Age and gender were found to relate to the occurrence of OML. In elderly men, smoking was significantly (p < 0.05) associated with some white lesions and tongue lesions, and alcohol drinking was also associated with some white lesions. In conclusion, tongue lesions and white lesions were relatively common in men, but pre-cancerous lesions were not prevalent.
