Benign Tumours and Tumour-like Lesions of the Jaws
Keywords:Odontogenic tumours, Nonodontogenic benign tumours, jaw cavity, tumour-like lesions, benign tumours.
Purpose: The goal of this study was to look at the age, gender, prevalence, and location(s) of odontogenic and nonodontogenic benign malignancies, in addition with tumour-like lesions in the jaws, in an Indian population, especially in Eastern India, and to compare the results with previous literature. Methods: The data was gathered during a 1-year period starting from January 2021 to November 2021 from files collected from a selected hospital. The data was studied descriptively in terms of age, gender, prevalence, lesion place and type. Results: During a one-year period, 200 benign tumours and tumour-like lesions of the jaws were chosen. Thirty-four (or 17%) of these lesions were odontogenic benign tumours, while 166 (or 83%) were nonodontogenic benign tumours and tumour-like lesions. Conclusion: The findings of this study demonstrated that the location and characteristics of benign tumours and tumour-like lesions of the oral cavity and jaws in the Indian population, particularly in the Eastern region of India, differ from those seen in other populations.
