The paper compares the prevalence of oral carcinoma and dysplasia in smokeless tobacco users and non users. A total of 3205 subjects were studied. Of the smokeless tobacco users, 1.96 percent had oral carcinoma compared with 0.36 percent of non-users. The prevalence of oral dysplasia in the users' group was 14.4 percent as compared with 6.85 percent in the group of non-users.
