Prospective study of diagnosis validation of a cytological technique. 200 patients with oral cavity cancerous and precancerous lesions will be enrolled.

A cytological sample of the lesion will be performed by transepithelial brushing ( Orcellex Rovers brush) in cytology liquid-based technology (methode ThinPrep 2000 (Hologic)). A microscopic double blind reading will be performed. A biopsy sampling will be carried out in accordance with current strategy of screening.
