Since the majority of human cancers are derived from epithelial cell changes in blood group antigens, it is an important aspect of human malignancies. So the present study was designed to evaluate the association between ABO blood group type and OC. Materials and Methods: A total of 63 atients were included in the study after obtaining a written consent and ethical clearance from the Institution. Demographic information including name, age, gender, adverse habits were recorded in a predesigned proforma. The clinically confirmed cases of OC were included and ABO blood grouping was done by routine method using Eryscreen Plus kit. The data was entered in MS excel and subjected to statistical analysis. Results: Most common age group affected in OC was 50-59 years and more in males. The most common site affected by OC was buccal mucosa. Blood group A patients were more common in OC. Conclusion: Based on the results of our study males aged above 50-59 years with blood group A were more prone to develop OC.
