Abstract:

Cancer is the devastating disease of our days, which requires increased attention, with continuous studies, to identify the most appropriate resolving solutions. Oral cancer is the most frequently encountered form of head and neck cancer group. The pandemic period was a real challenge for medical systems around the world, and the management of this situation was modified by the viral wave and by restrictions imposed all around the world. The first observed change was the intensification of telemedicine, the sorting of patients, in order to reduce as much as possible the visits to the hospital, and last but not least, changes were observed in the treatment schemes of the patients. The purpose of this paper is to analyze the changes observed both in the management of oral cancer and in the treatment schemes administered during the pandemic versus the non-pandemic period.
