Oral cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer seen in Southeast Asia. Tobacco, betel nut, and slaked lime are the important constituents of betel quid; this is regularly consumed by the youth and elderly as their regular practice. To curb this oral cancer menace, there are numerous policies and pathways, which are adopted by government, local authorities, and institutions. Among the various policies, one of the easiest ways to reach out to masses is in form of screening camps and sessions. Oral cancer screening forms the most vital part of any dental check-up camps. Due to ignorance or lack of adequate knowledge about the deadly results of cancer, people often neglect these screening camps. This may attribute to various reasons that lead to such ignorance and failure of such free screening sessions.
