In India, it is the third most common cancer overall but the most common cancer among males, and also ranks third among the various cancer types contributing to mortality in the country. While oral health literacy is defined as the degree to which individuals have the capacity to obtain process and understand basic oral health information and service needed to make appropriate health decision. It has been suggested that lower patient health literacy is a barrier to effective medical diagnosis and treatment.

The resercher concluded that, the teaching aids will be helpful in improving knowledge among students as well as public. The resercher recommended that, the community education programe and personal behaviour change education is required for cancer free nation.
