Background: The present study was conducted to assess serum lipid profile in patients with oral cancer. Materials & Methods: This study was conducted on 112 SCC patients of both genders. 5ml of blood sample was collected from each patient and stored in vacutainers. Blood was allowed to clot and then centrifuged for 15 min at 3000 rpm to separate the serum for lipid analysis on chemical analyzer. Results: Out 112 patients, males were 82 and females were 30. The mean triglycerides was 102.2 mg/dl in SCC and 142.4 mg/dl in control, cholesterol in SCC patients was 140.4 mg/dl and in control was 182.6 mg/dl, HDL was 36.2 mg/dl in SCC and 54.8 mg/dl in control, LDL was 102.4 mg/dl in SCC and 138.6 mg/dl in control. VLDL was 24.8 mg/dl in SCC and 23.4 mg/dl in control. The difference was significant (P< 0.05). Conclusion: Authors found that there was significant reduction in lipid profile in patients with oral cancer.
