Author Affiliations +
Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the United States. Over 85% of all cancers, such as colorectal, esophageal, bladder, cervical, and oral cancers, originate in the epithelial linings of the body and are readily curable if diagnosed at an early stage. However, many forms of precancerous epithelial lesions are difficult to detect and diagnose using current methods.
