Oral cancers and precancerous lesions are the most common diseases of concern in the world. These conditions have a high mortality rate which is rapidly increasing. Although various factors like tobacco consumption, alcohol, genetics, etc., play a role in etiopathogenesis of these lesions, currently there is a lot of growing interest in role of viruses like Epstein–Bar virus, human papillomavirus, herpes simplex virus, hepatitis C virus etc., in oral carcinogenesis. Viruses act in inducing cancers through different methods. Perhaps knowing the exact role of viruses in precancerous lesions and cancers can affect the treatment plans and prognosis of the patients.
