The various oral diseases can be diagnosed, screened, prevented and treated by paediatric dentists in children. Among many oral diseases, oral cancer is very rare and benign in the paediatric population. The abnormalities seen in the oral cavity can be diagnosed by the dentists and the oral cancer can be screened by oral and maxillofacial pathologists along with paediatric oncologists. If any changes are seen in the oral cavity of the child, the changes should be diagnosed as fast as possible and treated soon. The most common oral cancer is lymphoma and sarcoma, seen in children. The other type of cancer that may occur in children is melanoma. The anaerobic bacteria, a few viruses, and rare species of fungi are also responsible for oral cancer in children.
