Mouth cancer is caused by many factors and the major causes of mouth cancer are Tobacco use, heavy alcohol use and infection by HPV (Human Papillomavirus). Another factor of mouth cancer is UV-light which can cause lip cancer. Some factors are genetic factors. If genetic instability occurs in Keratinocytes then cancer is developed. The main reason of mouth cancer is Tobacco, cigarettes. Questioners about awareness of mouth cancer were solved by biotechnology students. Total 38 students performed to solve this questioner. The responses of these questions were analyzed. Total 32 females and 6 males solved the questioner. And by studying the questioner it was concluded that 73.68% students agreed that mouth cancer is a viral disease and 34.21% agreed that mouth cancer is genetic disease, 68.4% students agreed that mouth cancer transfer from parents to offspring’s and 31.5% students agreed that this disease is curable. So few students were fully aware few were not aware about mouth cancer. And the objective of this study is to aware biotechnology students about mouth cancer in Bahauddin Zakariya University Multan.
