    Author(s): Harini M, Priyadharshini R* and Palati Sinduja

    Introduction: Oral squamous cell carcinoma is a cancer of the head and neck region affecting the various parts of the oral cavity such as the lining of the lips, mouth, upper part of the throat etc. Anaemia due to cancer comes under the category of anaemia caused due to chronic disease. Red Blood Cells are also known as erythrocytes, in most cancer patients are damaged due to the cancer treatments such as cancer chemotherapy, radiation therapy which damages and kills cancer cells. Studies regarding red cell count have concluded that there is a positive correlation between RBC count and cancer survival. Thus, this study aims at comparing and correlating the haemoglobin, RDW and RBC values of normal and oral squamous cell carcinoma patients. Materials and methods: Haematology reports of 10 normal patients and 10 oral squamous cell carcinoma patients were collected from Saveetha Dental C.. Read More»
