Folic Acid for Precancerous Lesion

Laryngeal leukoplakia is a precancerous lesion that can progress to laryngeal cancer. Both laryngeal leukoplakia and cancers of the oral cavity, pharynx, and larynx are associated with low plasma folate levels. Major risk factors for the development of these cancers are smoking and alcohol intake, both of which can cause folate deficiency.

The results of the present study suggest that folic acid supplementation can reverse laryngeal leukoplakia and prevent its progression to laryngeal cancer.
