April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month in the USA.   Close to 48,250 Americans will be diagnosed with oral cancer this year. It will cause over 9,575 deaths, killing roughly 1 person per hour, 24 hours per day.  Of those 48,250 newly diagnosed individuals, only slightly more than half will be alive in 5 years. This is a number which has not significantly improved in decades.
