Figure 3: Percentage of oral potentially malignant disorders and malignant transformation in oral mucosal screening database among different regions in Taiwan. (a) Percentage of oral potentially malignant disorders in oral mucosal screening database among different regions in Taiwan. OPMD: Oral potentially malignant disorders, including leukoplakia, erythroplakia, oral submucosal fibrosis, oral verrucous hyperplasia, and oral lichen planus. Oral cancer: Including oral squamous cell carcinoma, verrucous carcinoma, and carcinoma in situ. (b) The malignant transformation (%) among different regions. Malignant transformation: Subsequent oral cancer occurring during the follow-up of oral potentially malignant disorders is defined as malignant transformation
