Acknowledgments
The Trivandrum Oral Cancer Screening (TOCS) project was supported by a generous grant from the Association for International Cancer Research (AICR) St Andrews, UK, without whose assistance this project and this large collection of pictures would not have been possible. We acknowledge additional funding support received from Cancer Research UK (CRUK), UK, which permitted the collection of additional TOCS data.

Dr K. Ramadas participated in the drafting, compiling and editing of this digital manual and a printed version of the manual (to be published soon) during the tenure of IARC Visiting Scientist Award (VSA) for the year 2007-2008 at the Screening Group, IARC.

We are extremely indebted to our reviewers for their thoughtful comments and suggestions, which greatly improved the content and quality of this manual. We are thankful for the additional image contributions from the colleagues listed above.
We are very greatful to:
   * Mrs E. Bayle (IARC) for editorial work;
